Johns Hopkins provides a remarkable training environment, with a close, interactive relationship with the trainees' mentors, exposure to the broad spectrum of neuroimmunological diseases, along with intensive hands-on research experience. The major goal of our program is to develop exceptional independent investigators equipped with the knowledge and motivation necessary to address critical questions relating to epidemiology, natural history, pathogenesis, and therapy of neuroimmunological diseases. Additionally, fellows will become experts in the evaluation and comprehensive management of patients with neuroimmunological diseases.

Fellows participate in specialty clinics including the multiple sclerosis (MS), neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders, transverse myelitis, stiff person syndrome spectrum disorders, encephalitis and neurosarcoidosis clinic. Fellows participate in the inpatient Neuroimmunology and Neuroinfectious (NINI) diseases consult service which provides a service to inpatient hospital patients who need specialized expertise in the workup/ management of NINI diseases.

Fellows typically attend a minimum of one national/international conference each year. Click here for more information.
