EHDN/MDS-ES Fellowships

Joint Fellowship Exchange Program Offering 6 Fellowships

The European Huntington’s Disease Network (EHDN) in collaboration with the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society- European Section (MDS-ES) is launching a joint Fellowship Exchange Program in Huntington’s disease (HD-FEP) offering six fellowships in 2020.

The program’s main objective is to provide a well-defined clinical observational experience in a department with recognized expertise in a HD specific field. The placement will be for a period of 6 weeks (5 days/wk) to visit as an observer to learn about general HD clinical practice or about a specific aspect of HD care.

Young neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, physiotherapists, and clinical geneticists working in Huntington’s disease clinical practice and research are invited to apply for the HD-FEP.

Priority will be given to applicants who wish to engage in clinical practice or research in HD, who have shown interest in HD (e.g. publications), and have a realistic prospect of remaining active in the HD field upon completion of the programme. Priority will also be given to applicants coming from countries/regions where HD facilities or a specific aspect of HD care is not well developed.

Questions about the HD-FEP and application may be directed to the EHDN at

Application deadline is Friday, March 20, 2020.

Comments from previous HD-FEP fellows:

Major learning outcomes of your fellowship:
  • 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.”
Impact of the fellowship on your clinical or research practice:
  • 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 […].
  • “I feel better equipped to manage my HD patients following this wonderful opportunity. I have also established links with other clinicians in this field who I can contact regarding both clinical and research questions in the future. I will definitely try to engage local psychiatrists in helping manage this complex disorder.
