ECTRIMS offers a MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS NURSE TRAINING FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME for qualified/licensed European nurses to provide the opportunity for them to obtain additional expertise through practical nursing experience and training in a mentored MS environment in Europe. Our aim is to enhance care and support of individuals with MS by fostering improved clinical care and education and by helping to promote best practices in nursing care throughout Europe.

Mentored training will be available for outstanding nurse candidates with some MS nursing experience who wish to enhance their professional capabilities. Training must be under the direction and mentorship of a senior MS nurse specialist, in association with a senior MS clinician where appropriate, at a European clinical site with significant expertise in MS. The training period must be for a minimum of 6 months or up to one year in duration. It is anticipate that two fellowships will be awarded each year, with additional awards possible depending on ECTRIMS finances and the qualifications of candidates.
