We are pleased to announce that the endMS Research and Training Network is launching its 3rd endMS Scholar Program for Researchers IN Training (SPRINT) as well as launching its 5th annual endMS Summer School competition in 2013! These are two of the national education and training program opportunities currently being offered to graduate students, postdoctoral and clinical fellows who are interested in multiple sclerosis research. The programs are offered and pursued as a supplement to the core studies and research efforts of trainees.
Summer School Competition
endMS Summer School is an annual one-week interactive education program that aims to enhance knowledge and skills in MS research among trainees.
To be eligible applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program or hold a postdoctoral/clinical fellowship normally at a Canadian university or be in the process of applying to a graduate program or postdoctoral/clinical fellowship. Those enrolled in an undergraduate program but who have previously completed graduate training (e.g. current medical students who completed a graduate degree) are also eligible.
The endMS Summer School enables trainees from a variety of disciplines to come together in a small-group setting to learn about MS-relevant research topics. These small group sessions are designed to facilitate networking, collaboration and information exchange among participants. The endMS Summer School alternates its focus between basic research one year and clinical and population health research the next.
The 2013 endMS Summer School will be hosted by the Western-Pacific endMS Regional Research and Training Centre in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia on May 13-17, 2013. The theme of the 2013 endMS Summer School is “Multiple Sclerosis Continuum: Imaging and the Pathogenesis of MS”

The endMS Scholar Program for Researchers IN Training is a national education and training program aimed to enhance knowledge and skills related to MS research among trainees and increase opportunities to conduct MS research in Canada. The program also aims to increase capacity for interdisciplinary research and help establish a peer network among trainees.
The program is intended to be pursued as a supplement to the core studies and research efforts of trainees at their own institution. endMS SPRINT is open to applicants who are enrolled in a graduate program or hold a postdoctoral/clinical fellowship normally at a Canadian university or be in the process of applying to a graduate program or postdoctoral/clinical fellowship. For further information on eligibility please refer to the Program Guidelines.
