This 1-year fellowship program at Massachusetts General Hospital is designed to provide advanced experience, training and mentoring to prepare the candidates for careers in academic neurology institutions. They will acquire skills, knowledge and expertise in the evaluation and care of patients with a wide range of neurological disorders referred to tertiary neurology centers that include the widening spectrum of autoimmune disorders, neurology of infectious diseases and in the evaluation of ill-defined complex neurological issues. The program also aims at preparing the neurologists for careers as clinician-educators devoted to teaching of modern neurology skills and knowledge to medical students and to the training of residents in neurology.
The core of program is the strongly patient care-focused experience. This is reflected in the core fellowship clinics, subspecialty clinic rotations, inpatient consultative duties, and conference schedule and teaching opportunities and assignments. The fellowship is one of immersion in this clinical experience and is conducive to learning by evaluation, treatment, and monitoring of a selected group of patients with complex and unusual neurological disorders with close precepting by dedicated and expert faculty. The fellows are expected to produce scholarly articles including reviews based on their clinical experience working with the faculty. An important aspect of this intense Fellowship program is the ready access and daily interactions with the accomplished and dedicated faculty with expertise in wide areas of neurology subspecialties and in education. The Fellowship is now integrated in to the newly-created Division of Neuro-immunology and Neuro-infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital, headed by Dr. Venna.
