Multiple sclerosis is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating condition of the central nervous system. It is the leading cause of disability in young adults. Depressive symptoms are common in MS, and there is a complex interplay between these symptoms and disease variables (i.e., severity of physical disability), neurocognitive impairments, immunotherapy, and quality of life. The aim of this project will be to model the predictors of depressive psychopathology, and to study epidemiology, aetiology and phenotype of MS-related depression. This project is offered as a fellowship for a registrar in clinical neuropsychology. To be successful, the candidate will need to have been awarded and APA/RTP scholarship and be eligible for an AHPRA/PBA approved registrar program in clinical neuropsychology. Clinical experience in the MS clinic at the Royal Melbourne Hospital will be provided, along with supervision for the duration of the registrar program. A $20,000 per annum top-up scholarship will be provided for up to 3 years.
