This multi-year fellowship, overseen by the Office of the Clinical Director (NINDS), is for individuals who wish to pursue a career as a physician-scientist with a specific area of research interest already defined. The goal of the fellowship is to prepare the fellow for submission of a successful career-transition award, and to further prepare them for the transition to an independent investigator.
Fellows who enter an NINDS clinical fellowship will obtain expertise in many different aspects of disease-oriented research from basic questions addressing the etiology of the disease to the design and conduct of clinical trials. There is great breadth and diversity of resources available allow the Fellows to design specific training experiences to suit their career goals. Access to on-campus resources helps build cross-disciplinary collaborations and strengthens the development of translational research projects. NINDS has a variety of specialized seminar series, translational research working groups and Neurology Grand Rounds. Fellows can also participate in weekly neurology consult rounds. Collectively, we provide unique training opportunities not available at other academic centers.
