The Neuroimmunology group of the Department of Neurology at the University of Colorado is comprised of six physicians, two physician assistants, three RNs and a host of associate staff. The physicians include two relatively unique subspecialties, a pediatric MS specialist and a neuroimmunologically trained hospitalist, both among a select few in the country. We provide clinical care at four sites in Denver and the surrounding region, with the bulk of patients seen at the University of Colorado Hospital. This year we will complete over 8,000 patient visits for multiple sclerosis and other immunological conditions affecting the central nervous system. We provide state-of-the-art care, and partner with dedicated experts in numerous related fields including neuro-ophthalmology, neuro-radiology, neuro-urology, physical therapy, neuro-otology, neurosurgery, neuropsychology and many others. Through an affiliation with a longstanding patient advocacy organization, the Rocky Mountain Multiple Sclerosis Center, we offer local, regional, national and international education for patients, their families, and their providers (through professional education).

In addition, we have a robust basic and translational science program dedicated to a greater understanding of MS and related conditions, with several labs within the department of Neurology and related departments. We run the Rocky Mountain MS Center Tissue Bank, providing CNS tissues to international researchers for over 30 years. Our clinical research program is one of the largest in the U.S., with over 40 active clinical research projects focused on both clinical trials as well a greater understanding of these conditions.

Our team engages in a wide variety of educational activities which include mentoring junior faculty, graduate, medical, and post-doctoral students, and neurology residents, educating movement disorders specialists through our fellowship program, and providing Continuing Medical Education (CME) events for local primary care physicians and neurologists. We have trained 20 fellows, that have mostly continued in successful academic careers. We recruit one-two fellows yearly (usually our top ranked persons) via the SF Match Program, that generally complete two years.

The successful applicant will also participate in our professional and patient/family education programs supported and organized through the community based non-profit organization, The Rocky Mountain MS Center (RMMSC).

The Department of Neurology is committed to recruiting and supporting a diverse student body, faculty, and administrative staff. Diversity is a source of strength, creativity, and innovation for the Department of Neurology. We value the contributions of each person and respect the profound ways their identity, culture, background, experience, status, abilities, and opinion enrich the community and the organization. We strive and commit to promote a culture of inclusiveness, respect, communication and understanding. We encourage applications from women, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities and all veterans. The Department of Neurology also is actively engaging in the areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and wellness. Employees will have the opportunity to engage in these areas as they feel comfortable.
