Medstar Georgetown Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Fellowship Program
Washington DC

The Georgetown Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology Fellowship Program trains physicians to become clinical experts in the diagnosis and management of CNS autoimmune disorders including multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, optic neuritis, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, neurosarcoidosis, paraneoplastic syndromes, etc.

The fellows work in the nation’s first and only Multiple Sclerosis Patient Centered Specialty Practice, where the focus is placed on the care of the patient, in the spirit of cura personalis. Fellows work in the outpatient clinic with Dr. Amjad, Dr. Barry, Dr. Hu, Dr. Osborne, Dr. Shin, and Dr. Tornatore. The fellows gain expertise in the medical management of diverse clinical syndromes, including training in neuro-ophthalmology, neuroradiology and spasticity clinic (learning botulinum toxin therapy and management of intrathecal baclofen pumps).

Some fellows choose to complete a second research-focused year. By handling clinical trials, fellows become familiar with IRB requirements and the role of a principal investigator. For more information, click here
