The Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship at UAB provides an opportunity for neurologists with an interest in clinical neuroimmunology to develop specialized expertise in patient care and research for individuals with MS and related disorders.
Fellows may tailor the fellowship to their own interests and career plans under the mentorship of faculty from the Division of Neuroimmunology, and are encouraged to develop collaborations across campus with experts from a range of clinical and academic disciplines.
A central component of the clinical training program for MS Fellows is the time spent caring for patients at UAB’s Kirklin Clinic. Fellows provide consultation and follow-up care for their own patients while working under the supervision of one or more MS faculty members. By managing their own clinics, Fellows develop expertise in the diagnosis and ongoing management of MS and other neuroimmunological disorders.
Fellows are expected to apply their knowledge about diagnostic tests and therapeutic agents to deliver high quality care in the clinical setting and to develop an appreciation for the psychosocial issues and individual factors which make clinical care both an art and a science. Fellows will also develop familiarity with the monitoring requirements for immune modulating agents, approaches to symptom management, management of relapses, and the recognition when referral for specialty services is required.
