Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship

Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship

The Georgetown Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Fellowship Program trains physicians to become clinical experts in the diagnosis and management of CNS autoimmune disorders including multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, optic neuritis, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, neurosarcoidosis, paraneoplastic syndromes, etc.

The fellows work in the nation’s first and only Multiple Sclerosis Patient Centered Specialty Practice, where the focus is placed on the care of the patient, in the spirit of cura personalis. Fellows work in the outpatient clinic with Drs. Faria Amjad, Brian Barry, Nancy Hu, Benjamin Osborne, Robert Shin, and Carlo Tornatore. Through this broad and varied clinical training, the fellows gain expertise in the medical management of a diverse clinical syndromes, including training in neuro-ophthalmology (incorporating the use of visual field testing and spectral domain OCT), neuroradiology and spasticity clinic (learning botulinum toxin therapy and management of intrathecal baclofen pumps).

Fellows also work on clinical trials, become proficient on performing the EDSS, and are trained in developing their own research protocols. Some fellows choose to complete a second research-focused year. By handling clinical trials, fellows become familiar with IRB requirements and the role of a principal investigator.
