Program Information:Program Director: Daniel Pastula, MD, MHS
Our Neuro-Infectious Diseases/Autoimmune Neurology Fellowship is a joint program between the Department of Neurology and the Division of Infectious Diseases. It is open to both neurologists and infectious disease physicians who wish to learn more about neuro-infectious and neuro-inflammatory conditions. It is a one-year clinical fellowship at the University of Colorado Hospital from July 1 to June 30.
Our fellows will be trained in the diagnosis and management of various neuro-infectious diseases (e.g., bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic meningoencephalitis and myelitis) among both immunocompetent and immunosuppressed (e.g., HIV/AIDS, transplant patients) patients. They will also be trained in the diagnosis and management of various neuro-inflammatory diseases (e.g., autoimmune encephalitis, sarcoid, lupus, multiple sclerosis), and become very familiar with immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory medications. Finally, they will be introduced to various public health and laboratory processes. After graduation, our fellow would be well-trained for a variety of academic or private practice neurology or infectious disease positions.
Denver, Colorado, offers many outdoor and cultural activities. Whether you like skiing, hiking, drinking craft beer, visiting museums, or going to games, there is plenty to see and do while training here!
Please have your complete application in by December 1 one and a half years prior to the desired fellowship start date (e.g., December 2023 for a July 2025 start). We plan to review complete applications and conduct virtual interviews throughout December, January, and early February. We hope to have final decisions and commitments by mid to late February.
