About the program

The Joint Fellowship Program for Huntington’s Disease Training funds 6 clinical fellows in a highly regarded multi-disciplinary clinic in Europe to observe and learn more about a general or specific aspect of Huntington's disease (HD). 

Selected fellows will be awarded a €1,800 EUR grant for accommodations and living expenses, and reimbursed for additional travel (up to €500 EUR) to their participating host site. You can arrange placement during 2023 at an eligible host site that suits your educational needs.

Neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists and clinical geneticists working in Huntington’s disease clinical practice and research are eligible to apply.

 

Eligibility

The applicant must be:

  • Under the age of 40, or less than five years since the award of their final professional qualification.
  • A Board-Certified Neurologist, Psychiatrist, Physiotherapist, Psychologist or Clinical Geneticist, or in training for Board Certification
  • Fluent in English or in the local language of the host country

Awardees from previous years are not eligible to re-apply.

Applicants can be from any MDS region, with a particular focus on applicants from countries/regions where HD facilities or a specific aspect of HD care is not well developed. Priority will be given to applicants who are already engaged in clinical practice in HD and have a realistic prospect of remaining active in the HD field following completion of the programme.

Application

Fellows will be responsible for a final report on their experience, among other requirements. For complete details, read the HD fellowship information and instructions

Comments from Previous Fellows:

 

“The first is the active participation to research fields (i.e., HD animal models) and to different systems I was not familiar with. […] This broadened my clinical and research perspectives and improved my knowledge of HD.”
 

“The clinic was a great setting for understanding the varied clinical phenotype of HD.”

“The fellowship will positively influence my clinical and research practice thanks to the new skills and knowledge acquired. This experience will especially impact on my research carrier […].”

 

Offered via a partnership between: 

International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society

European Huntington's Disease Network
