Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2023 MS Mentorship Program.
Emerging knowledge of the neuropathology of MS and advances in neuro-imaging have expanded treatment horizons in multiple sclerosis. It is estimated that within the next decade, the demands of a growing patient population may outstrip the number of professionals dedicated to the treatment of this lifelong chronic disease.
Now in its eighth year the MS Mentorship Forum is a unique educational program designed for trainees who are interested in or have recently entered the field of MS practice. Participants will benefit from specialized training in MS from expert faculty members as well as discussions from peer mentors about networking and mentoring opportunities that will facilitate their successful advancement in their field of specialization. In addition to the Forum itself and throughout the Annual Meeting, more casual opportunities will be available to network with other attendees and faculty and guest speakers.
This Forum will be held in conjunction with the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) in Aurora, CO, May 31-June 3, 2023.
Forum participants will be provided:
- Complimentary meeting registration
- $2,250 scholarship to cover travel and hotel accommodations. Please plan to arrive by Monday (5/29/23) to attend the MS Mentorship Forum starting Tuesday morning. Any additional costs incurred will be personal responsibility of the scholar.

- Tue, May 30, 2023
Full-Day MS Mentorship Forum (breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

The full day program will convene expert faculty members (experienced experts noted in their subspecialty) and “peer mentor” neurologists or subspecialists who have completed specialty fellowships or 5-7 years of practice in areas of expertise important to MS care. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided.
