Autoimmune Neurology Fellowship (Minnesota)
Mayo Clinic in Rochester offers a one-year fellowship in Autoimmune Neurology.
This fellowship is designed to train academic neurologists in the emerging 21st century subspecialty of autoimmune neurology. The entire spectrum of neurological disorders recognized as autoimmune in nature comprises both idiopathic and paraneoplastic entities, and intersects all traditional neurology subspecialties:
- Movement disturbances
- "Degenerative" disorders
By providing an opportunity to participate in cutting-edge development and translational activities, the Autoimmune Neurology Fellowship ideally complements sub-specialization in neuromuscular, CNS demyelinating, PNS/autonomic, behavioral, movement or seizure disorders, neuro-oncology or pediatric neurology.
You will participate in interdisciplinary conferences at Mayo Clinic and nationally. There will be abundant opportunities for translational research and for manuscript preparation and potential for second year with greater research emphasis
Mayo Clinic's Autoimmune Neurology Fellowship can be tailored to your specific needs and goals. After completing this fellowship, you will be prepared to pursue a cutting-edge career in academic neurology.
To ensure that you acquire adequate knowledge and develop your technical skills, your performance will be monitored carefully during the course of your program training. You will be evaluated formally by your supervising faculty member after each clinical rotation and will meet with the program director to review these evaluations. In addition, you will regularly evaluate the faculty to ensure that your educational needs are being met.
The Autoimmune Neurology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester accepted its first trainee in 2005 to complete training in 2006. It is anticipated that one fellow will complete this program annually.
