The University of North Carolina Neuroimmunology/Multiple Sclerosis (MS) program is designed to provide a comprehensive training in clinical care and in conducting clinical research for pediatric and adult patients with MS and other immune-mediated CNS disorders (transverse myelitis, optic neuritis, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders, autoimmune encephalitis, neuro-lupus, neuro-Sjögren, etc.). Our MS center has been recently recognized by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as a “Partner in MS Care” for providing a comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment for people with MS.
Clinical fellows will be involved in routine patient care, as well as in the design of study protocols, recruitment of patients and control subjects, identification of outcome measures, safety monitoring and evaluation, data analysis and presentation.
Please forward a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to our program coordinator, who is also available to answer any questions.
