Clinical Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship Training

We are pleased to offer a Clinical MS Fellowship Program in a new facility which opened in 2012, to meet the complex needs of patients with MS, other CNS demyelinating and CNS autoimmune diseases. The University of Washington (UW) has demonstrated its commitment to MS care and to the community by building a state-of-the-art, multi-disciplinary MS Center. The UW MS Center offers dedicated, comprehensive MS care by providers from neurology, rehabilitation medicine and rehabilitation psychology specialized in MS in a single location and is opened Monday through Friday. An on-site pharmacist is part of our faculty overseeing infusions at the UW MS Center’s infusion suite and providing consultations regarding complex pharmaceutical regimens to both patients and providers. Additionally, a vocational counselor, a social worker and MS-specialized nurses are integral members of the clinical team. The UW MS Center was awarded “Partners in MS Care” status by the National MS Society for performing the highest level of comprehensive care and has been repeatedly awarded the UW Quarterly Patient Satisfaction Excellence Award across all UW Medicine outpatient entities.

For its excellence in clinical training, the UW Medicine Multiple Sclerosis Center currently holds a prestigious 5-year Institutional Clinical Training Award funded by the National MS Society to train the next generation of MS specialists.The UW has a more than 15-year history of Clinical MS Fellowship Training in both neurology and rehabilitation medicine. We have a strong track record of helping our graduates build successful academic or clinical careers in MS care.

The MS Fellow will receive training in CNS demyelinating and related diseases with a focus on clinical training by a multidisciplinary faculty. The MS Fellow will also actively engage in clinical research and academic activities with ample opportunities for clinical, research and leadership training.
