Neuroimmunology and Neurological Infectious Disease Fellowship

Specialized Fellowship Training

Johns Hopkins provides a remarkable training environment by providing a close interactive relationship with the trainees' mentors, an intensive hands-on research experience, and coursework.

The fellowship provides board eligible or certified neurologists to train for 2-3 years in the clinical or basic science research skills and management of patients with disorders of the nervous system.

The major goals of our programs are to develop exceptional independent investigators equipped with the knowledge and motivation necessary to address critical questions relating to the epidemiology, natural history, pathogenesis, and therapy of neuroimmunology and neurological infectious disease.

The multidisciplinary organization of the training program guarantees each trainee exposure to current scientific issues and research approaches used in the study of immune disorders and neurological infectious diseases. This is accomplished through a highly collaborative faculty network, formal research seminars, and informal presentations of work-in-progress, journal reviews, and didactic lectures. These intellectually stimulating experiences encourage the utilization of expertise across disciplines and facilitate collaborative thinking, leading to the development of productive scientific careers in either clinical and/or basic science research.

Specialized Clinics and Research Training Opportunities

The Fellow will participate in specialty clinics, including the multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, neuroHIV, neuro-vestibular, neuro-ophthalmology, neuroradiology, neuropathology, MS Infusion Center, lumbar puncture clinics and others available.

Fellows will also have the opportunity to participate active clinical research nationally as well as international research programs in neuroinfectious diseases in Africa and Asia, if available. The research training program consists of didactic courses in biostatistics, bioethics, clinical trial design, grant writing workshops, neuroimmunology and neurovirology. Those courses are offered through the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
