ECTRIMS offers a Multiple Sclerosis Professional Training Fellowship Programme for nurses, psychologists, physiotherapists, and related allied health care professionals, for qualified individuals to obtain or expand their expertise in MS through practical experience and training in a mentored MS environment in Europe. Our aim is to enhance the care and support of individuals with MS by fostering improved clinical care and education and by helping to promote best practices in MS care throughout Europe.
Mentored training will be available for outstanding candidates with no prior MS experience or those with some MS experience who wish to enhance their professional capabilities. Training must be under the direction and mentorship of a senior MS specialist, in association with a senior MS clinician where appropriate, at a European clinical site with significant expertise in MS.
The intent is to provide short- to mid-range training, either hands-on or observational, in a specialised MS practice, with a flexible training period of weeks to months, up to one year in duration. The proposal for hands-on or observational training should include a detailed explanation of the training programme at the host institution.
It is anticipated that multiple fellowships will be awarded each year, depending on the candidate and mentor qualifications, the quality of the training proposal, and ECTRIMS finances.
