The Division of Movement Disorders offers a one-year or two-year fellowship

The Division of Movement Disorders offers a one-year or two-year fellowship that provides clinical training in the diagnosis and management of movement disorders. Fellows can expect in-depth exposure to a broad spectrum of common and rare movement disorders, involvement in clinical and translational research and electives tailored to their specific goals and interests.  

One-year fellowships are primarily clinical, with some additional opportunity for research projects and clinical trial design. Two-year fellowships provide expanded time during the second year for pursuing more in-depth research projects and research training to further develop fellows into clinician investigators.  

How to Apply

Our movement disorders fellowship program participates in the SF Match each year, and applications will only be accepted through the SF Match system. The application deadline is May 15.
