Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Fellowship

Interview Updates

For the 2022-2023 application cycle, all Department of Neurology fellowship programs at MCW will be conducting virtual interviews due to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic.

Welcome from the Program Director, Ahmed Obeidat, MD, PhD

Thank you for your interest in the neuroimmunology and multiple sclerosis (MS) fellowship program at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Our program spans 1-2 years of clinical training tailored to the fellow's career goals. We provide extensive training in diagnosing and managing MS and closely related disorders, e.g., neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders. Further, our fellows get the chance to diagnose and treat various autoimmune conditions affecting the central nervous system, e.g., autoimmune encephalitis. We also provide training in clinical trial operation and academic neuroimmunology teaching skills. Our team comprises several fellowship-trained neuroimmunology and MS specialists, advanced practice providers, clinical pharmacist, MS-certified nurses, and a team of clinical research staff. Our team cares for thousands of people living with MS and related disorders; the National MS Society designates us as a center of comprehensive care and a partner in MS care. We are also a member of the Consortium of MS Centers. We thank you for your interest and look forward to receiving your application.

Program Overview

For the academic year 2022-2023 application cycle, all Department of Neurology fellowship programs at MCW will be conducting virtual interviews for all fellowship positions per recommendations from the CDC and the ACGME due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. MCW, in accordance with the CDC and ACGME, will provide updated information as it becomes available. The Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Fellowship is designed to increase the workforce of the future in the field of neuroimmunology and MS. Our candidates are neurologists looking for a career in patient care and clinical research in neuroimmunology. This one- to two-year program is tailored to the interest of the fellow. The one-year clinical program will best prepare our trainee for a career in clinical neuroimmunology (academic or non-academic) while the two-year program will best suit a career of a clinician-scientist in neuroimmunology and MS research.
