Movement Disorders Fellowship

The Department of Neurology of the University of Kentucky Medical Center has positions available for a one or two year fellowship in movement disorders.

Under the direction of John T. Slevin, MD, UKMC has a comprehensive clinical Movement Disorders Program strongly integrated with its Morris K. Udall Parkinson’s Disease Research Center of Excellence and Dean’s VA Parkinson’s Disease Consortium Center. The one-year Fellowship focuses on clinical care, including evaluation and treatment of inpatients in the newly opened state-of-the-art University Hospital, outpatients in the integrated Neurology/Neurosurgery Kentucky Neuroscience Institute, and in/outpatient rehabilitation at affiliated Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital. Extensive experience is provided in the use of botulinum toxin and patient evaluation for DBS surgery and stimulator programming. Fellows are encouraged to take part in translational research during the first year; those who elect for a two-year experience will spend most of the second year participating in translational or basic research.


Applicants for the endowed Braden-Clark Fellowship in Parkinson’s Disease Research  must be board-eligible/certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Per UK GME policy, only J1 visas are sponsored. H1 visas are not sponsored.

The fellowship position for the 20/21 academic year has been filled.

We are currently accepting applications for the 21/22 academic year. Applications for the 22/23 AY will be accepted though the SF Match. Please contact the program coordinator at for more information.
