University of Chicago
Chicago, Illinois

The University of Chicago offers a world renowned fellowship program in neuroimmunology/multiple sclerosis. Since its foundation in the late 1970’s, most of the clinical trials in MS have been conducted here. The fellowship program has trained more than a dozen physicians most of whom have taken careers at academic institutions. The program offers a 1 year clinical and a 2 year combined clinical and research fellowship. The latter requires a 2 year Masters of Science degree offered by the Public Health Sciences Department. The fellowship program is multidisciplinary, with emphasis on mechanisms of disease and in-depth study of neuroradiology, clinical trials, internal IND applications, and drug development. Close collaborations with neuro-ophthalmology, memory center, rheumatology, infectious disease, epilepsy, and neuropsychiatry exist. Over 100 NMO patients, MOG, and autoimmune encephalitis patients are followed in a multidisciplinary autoimmunity clinic. There are opportunities for research, clinical and translational, depending on the interests of fellows.
