Training Opportunities

Neuroimmunology Fellowship at UTHealth

*information for fellowships beginning July 2025*

The Division of Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmunology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) currently consists of 5 faculty that are actively seeing patients with MS and related diseases.  Please see our division web page  for details on our faculty, their interests, and clinical activities.  In addition to our busy clinical practice, we participate in a number of clinical trials of new treatments and conduct a variety of basic, imaging, and applied research projects.

We have a consistent fellowship program with one fellow a year since 2018.  Our last three fellows have assumed a faculty position at an academic program at the end of their fellowship.

The fellowship experience is flexible and can be tailored to the interests of the fellow.  We offer a one-year fellowship focused on clinical training, and also a two year fellowship combining clinical and research training.  We have abundant clinical material, a regular series of group conferences on imaging and difficult diagnoses, and encourage independent thinking and research activities.  The majority of our patients are adults, but we also see pediatric patients in the clinic and hospital.

Funding is arranged each year.  Past funding has been through philanthropy, the National MS Society, and pharma.  The selected applicant will be expected to apply for fellowship support from NMSS.

Applicants should be completing residency training in neurology or pediatric neurology at an accredited US program, be board eligible in neurology, and be eligible for a Texas state medical license.  Unfortunately, University policy does not allow physicians who are not eligible for a US medical license to participate meaningfully in patient care.

If interested, you should apply through the SF Match with the following materials:

  • Personal statement describing why you are interested in a neuroimmunology fellowship and your career goals and desired experiences during training
  • Current curriculum vitae
  • Three letters of recommendation from faculty you have worked with during residency

If you have any questions, you can contact our administrative assistant Ryan Glenn ( or J. William Lindsey, MD, the division director (

We have selected our fellow starting in July, 2024.  We are accepting applications for fellowships starting July 2025 through the SF Match (  We will interview candidates in December 2023 and January 2024.
