Neuroimmunology/Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship

Neuroimmunology/Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship

The Neuroimmunology fellowship at Northwestern is a one-to-two-year subspecialty training program. The fellow will gain clinical expertise in the comprehensive care of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other related central nervous system (CNS) demyelinating/inflammatory diseases. In addition, the fellow will also be trained in the care of patients with neurological complications of HIV infection and other Neuro-Infectious diseases.

Fellows will participate in a monthly journal club and monthly case presentation of interesting demyelinating cases. There are also monthly didactic conferences for residents covering various topics on Neuro-Immunology or Neuro-Infectious Diseases. The fellow will attend as well as give some of these lectures.

The fellow will develop the skills to educate not only their patients, but also residents and medical students. Fellows greatly contribute to the resident and medical student education while they are in the clinic or seeing cases in the hospital.
