Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship

The Multiple Sclerosis Center at UT Southwestern under the direction of Benjamin Greenberg, M.D., M.H.S., emphasizes a comprehensive approach to the triad of patient care, clinical and basic research, and teaching.

The clinical group comprises neurologists, advanced practice providers, clinical nurses, ophthalmology technicians, and a large research team. The group also includes an infusion suite and dedicated social worker/case managers. Basic science labs include focuses on B cell biology, T cell biology, genetics and microbiome studies. An advanced imaging center is dedicated to novel technologies relative to characterizing MS and related conditions.

The group cares for more than 5,000 patients from all 50 states and several foreign countries, and is actively involved in multiple clinical trials that evaluate disease-modifying agents, symptomatic therapies, and new diagnostic and prognostic criteria. We are actively involved in studies aimed at understanding neurodegeneration and neuroprotection utilizing optical coherence tomography (OCT) and other neuro-ophthalmologic assessments that characterize retinal damage following optic neuritis.

The CONQUER MS (Collaboration on Neuroimmunology: Question, Understand, Educate, Restore) Program includes four recognized Comprehensive MS Centers:

  • UT Southwestern
  • Parkland Hospital
  • Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center
  • Children's Health

The Adult MS Clinical Center at UT Southwestern is comprised of 11 exam rooms, ocular motor physiology, and optic nerve laboratories equipped with state of the art retinal imaging technologies. We have complete electronic charting, ordering, and digital imaging. The Parkland and VA Medical Center locations are incorporated into comprehensive neurology outpatient clinics. The Children’s Health MS Center is located in the outpatient pavilion of Children’s Medical Center Dallas. It includes a dedicated pediatric ophthalmologic laboratory equipped with visual acuity testing and OCT equipment.

Fellows are able to apply for 1-year clinical, 2-year clinical research, or 3-year clinical/basic science fellowships contingent on available funding. During the course of clinical training, fellows will rotate in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Rotations with physiatry, physical therapy, ophthalmology, neuropsychology, urology, and radiology are available and encouraged.

Fellows will be trained in clinical and translational research. Support from the Neurosciences Translational Research Center will allow for fellows to pursue novel research projects and be mentored in the techniques and regulatory requirements for investigator initiated studies. Fellows will be expected to actively participate in research and publish during fellowship.
