Available Fellowship Positions

Cleveland Clinic
Cleveland, Ohio

The Clinical Neuroimmunology Fellowship is designed to prepare academically-oriented neurologists and physiatrists for a career in patient care and clinical research. Within that broad framework, the training program is flexible; the specific curriculum and duration are tailored to the Fellow’s background, interests, and career goals. One aspect of the fellowship is supervised patient care to develop specialized expertise in the diagnosis and management of MS and autoimmune neurological disorders, including comprehensive multidisciplinary care. The other potential focus of the fellowship is training in clinical research, most often experimental therapeutics. Fellows pursuing clinical research training divide their time between participation as co-investigator in ongoing trials, graduate coursework, and conducting independent research. To supplement the clinical and research activities, there are a variety of lectures and conferences. For more information, click here
