The NYU Center for Cognitive Neurology is pleased to announce a new cognitive neurology fellowship. The fellowship is for one year with an optional second research-focused year. The center is currently interviewing for candidates for an open position in the 2024-2025 academic year, as well as the 2025-2026 academic year.

The fellowship aims to recruit the most qualified aspiring cognitive neurologists to a dynamic, rigorous cognitive neurology fellowship, and foster a program that will educate trainees on the latest and most comprehensive approaches to the diagnosis and management of patients with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and advance trainee careers as related to translation/clinical research, clinical trials, and general career development skills. Year 1 involves ~60 percent to 70 percent outpatient clinical time with faculty in the Barlow Center for Memory Disorders, NYU Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and related centers to build clinical acumen in ADRD and begin to develop a research project with a mentor. An optional Year 2 would be offered for fellows to spend up to 90 percent of their time on a research plan developed and initiated during Year 1, with the hope that this will lead to independent external funding from foundations and/or the National Institutes of Health. Clinical practice and research exposure will be augmented by didactics, journal clubs, and conferences.
