National Multiple Sclerosis Society - Medical Student Fellowship in MS

Description:Sponsored by the Gateway Area Chapter of the National MS Society, the Medical Student Fellowship in MS program offers the opportunity to expose medical students in their preclinical and clinical years to the field of multiple sclerosis. Proposed rotations may include learning about multi-disciplinary care, clinical trials, research, and advocacy/support at a MS Affiliated Centers for Comprehensive Care based in a medical school or private practice setting. The National MS Society will award stipends to pre-clinical medical students or research funding (elective credit) to clinical students. Students are expected to identify a mentor (i.e. neurologist) to discuss interests and opportunities. A list of mentors and a description of available experiences is available through the NMSS. The fellowship program was established to stimulate individuals to pursue careers in neurology and multiple sclerosis in either research or practice settings.
