MS Mentorship Forum – Medical Professionals In Training 2024

***Application Deadline: Friday, March 1, 2024 – 5:00 PM Eastern Time***

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Emerging knowledge of the neuropathology of MS and advances in neuroimaging 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 ninth 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 2024 Annual Meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) in Nashville, TN, May 29 to June 1, 2024.

Forum participants will be provided:
