Careers in Multiple Sclerosis Care

Teresa Johnson

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

A career in the multiple sclerosis (MS) field can be intellectually stimulating,

satisfying and inspiring! Much has been learned over the past 30 years, with

12 FDA-approved disease-modifying treatments and effective rehabilitation

strategies available. The etiology remains elusive and treatments are effective

for many, but they don’t cure MS. Promising research is underway of this

often, devastating disease. Explore career opportunities in research, clinical

care or multi-disciplinary clinical team, where you can make a real difference

in helping people with MS live their best lives or make a significant impact

in developing treatments and a ultimately a cure! Picture yourself in a lab,

exploring molecular mechanisms or conducting a clinical trial to evaluate a

new treatment or working with physicians, nurses, rehabilitation and mental

health professionals helping people with MS and their families face the

challenges of this unpredictable disease. Be a part of the bright future of

MS care!
