The National Multiple Sclerosis Society invites applications for its Clinical Care Physician Fellowship.
The program offers a one-year post-residency program designed to train a board eligible/certified neurologist or psychiatrist in specialized MS clinical care, including the opportunity to perform new patient consultations and follow-up evaluations under the supervision of an MS specialist physician. The fellow also will participate in multidisciplinary team activities, lectures, and professional meetings.
A stipend of $75,000 will be awarded to the fellow’s institution in support of the program activities.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to arrange the proposed training with an appropriate mentor/institution. Applicant and mentor teams are expected to propose a program that largely involves direct, supervised MS patient care along with other activities that expose the applicant to a multidisciplinary healthcare team and didactic activities. The focus of the fellowship is clinical care (not research).
Pre-applications are due July 31. Upon review, formal applications will be due August 7, 2019.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD or DO degree (or equivalent) and be licensed to practice medicine in the United States. Residents who have or will have received training in neurology or psychiatry in the United States and who are in the PGY3 or PGY4 stage (or beyond) are eligible to apply. There is no citizenship requirement for this opportunity.
