The University of Michigan Multiple Sclerosis Center seeks to train qualified, dedicated neurologists who wish to become experts in the diagnosis and longitudinal management of MS and related inflammatory disorders of the central nervous system. Fellows will receive comprehensive training through one-on-one supervised patient management, didactic sessions, and exposure to clinical MS research for the duration of their fellowship. Fellows are supervised by the Fellowship Director and other University of Michigan MS specialists. The duration and structure of the fellowship can be, in part, customized based on the goals and interests of the fellow. Fellows primarily interested in a 12-month Clinical Fellowship typically spend 60-80% of their time seeing patients. Fellows who secure grant funding for a two-three year MS Research Fellowship will spend 20-40% of their time seeing patients, and the remainder of the time engaged in clinical research training, as outlined by their sponsored fellowship research proposal and research mentors.
