About the Program

Fellows may tailor their experience depending on their interests. Our fellows develop competence managing these complicated and rare diseases in the outpatient and inpatient settings, as well as through case discussion, didactic presentations, and scholarly work – preparing them for a career in academic neurology or in community practice.

Our fellows also participate in neuroimmunology research. We have developed a University of Iowa Bio-Repository of Autoimmune and Inflammatory Neurologic diseases – UI-BRAIN. We are a site for multiple research studies and clinical trials in neuroimmunology. The University of Iowa is also home to the Data Coordinating Center (DCC) for the The Network for Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials (NeuroNEXT), for which we are also a clinical site.

Our program includes a competitive benefits package. Iowa City provides a vibrant and diverse community with many affordable housing options and cultural and recreational activities.
