Clinical Training

The fellowship at UIHC offers 1 year of clinical training which provides a strong education in diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric autoimmune and infectious neurological diseases for either academic or community-based practice careers. The fellow sees patients in both outpatient and inpatient settings:

Outpatient setting:

  • Fellow continuity of care clinics: staffed by one of the neuroimmunology faculty
  • Electives: option to rotate through our state-of-the-art clinics and diagnostic services
    • Neuro-ophthalmology clinic
    • Rheumatology clinic
    • Neuropathology rotation
    • Neuroradiology rotation

Inpatient exposure:

  • We have established a “super-consult” system
    • Our inpatient neurology teams (general neurology, consults, stroke and pediatric neurology) will request consultation for complicated and rare neurological disorders
    • Consults are staffed with one of the neuroimmunology faculty
    • Patients are often seen back in the fellow’s continuity of care clinic, offering valuable longitudinal follow-up through the different phases of their illness
  • Electives: option to rotate with our infectious diseases consultation team
