Grant to a USA mentor at an accredited institution to train postdoctoral fellows beginning careers in the care of individuals with multiple sclerosis. Applicants must submit a pre-application prior to submitting a full application. The mentor-institution combination will be responsible for the recruitment, selection, and training of postdoctoral fellows to pursue a clinical career specializing in the care of individuals with multiple sclerosis and similar disorders.
The Society welcomes applications for support of mentors and institutions that will provide training for board-certified/eligible neurologists and physiatrists in new patient consultations, treatment and follow-up evaluations under the supervision of an MS specialist physician, as well as participation in multidisciplinary team activities, lectures, and professional meetings. The goal is for fellows to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to provide the highest quality of care for individuals with MS.
The mentor should be an established and active clinician in the MS field. The fellowship will provide for support of a postdoctoral fellow who will work closely with the mentor.
The program of training to be supported should enhance the likelihood that the trainee will: (a) Establish or join an active MS clinical practice in the United States to provide high quality, state-of-the-art, comprehensive clinical care to patients with MS and (b) become an active participant and future leader in the MS clinical community, including volunteer activities with the Society at a local chapter or the home office (e.g., as a member of the Clinical Advisory Committee, Chapter Programs Committee, or Board of Trustees, as a speaker at a patient or professional education program, etc.)
Applications that include training related to underserved MS patient populations (rural, those with progressive disease, minorities, etc.) will be looked upon favorably.

The salary offered is $75,000 plus up to an additional 25% to cover fringe benefits.
Travel Allowance: An allowance of no more than $2,500 per year may be made to help institutions defray the costs of travel for the postdoctoral fellow to one or more professional meetings.
Mentoring Expenses: An allowance of no more than $10,000 per year may be made to help institutions defray the costs incurred by the mentor in the course of providing training and supervision to the postdoctoral fellow.
The Institutional Clinician Training Award will have a term of five years. However, the term of training of each fellow is determined by the mentor based on the period of time required for the training needed for development of an independent clinician. Support for a given fellow is not usually provided for less than one year or more than three years.
