University of South Florida

The USF MS Center is committed to the early diagnosis and treatment of MS through leading-edge, multi-disciplinary approaches, including the training of the future MS workforce. Our Center serves a large MS population of ~2,500 patients from central Florida and the Greater Tampa Bay population of more than 5 million. Our National MS Society-accredited Center is well situated to train MS Fellows, as it offers comprehensive care for MS patients through on-site neuropsychiatry services, vestibular rehab, urology services, EMG-guided Botox, Neuro-ophthalmology clinic, and a state-of-the-art neuroimaging facility. Fellows would build a solid foundation for managing a busy, MS-specific clinic under direct supervision. Additionally, we conduct MS clinical research, with multiple active studies ongoing, providing the Fellow an opportunity to learn about trial design, patient recruitment, and regulatory/compliance requirements of conducting clinical research, while providing the opportunity to learn about the newest therapeutics in the MS pipeline.
