Clinical Postdoctoral Training in Alzheimer's Disease: Neurobehavior of Dementia Fellowship
In 1998, the Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders Center established a clinical postdoctoral training position for physicians who have completed their neurology training. This fellowship is funded by a grant from Garden Terrace Alzheimer's Center of Excellence. This position provides the physician closely mentored, extended, in-depth training in the clinical diagnosis, treatment, and multidisciplinary management of mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. In addition to patient care, the postdoctoral candidate will attend a weekly consensus conference, monthly ADMDC research conference comprised of representatives from multiple medical institutions, local and national CME programs, seminars, symposia, and lectures on Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. As a component of their specialty training, participating physicians will learn how clinical care informs and is translated to research, while learning to apply research within a clinical care setting. Collaborations with students and faculty in the Translational Biology and Molecular Medicine program are also available. The position is one to two years (two years for those interested in research).
Requirements: United States or Canadian residency completed in Neurology or Psychiatry, or USMLE parts I, II, and III and completion of a residency in Neurology or Psychiatry.
