Pål Berg-Hansen has a medical degree from University of Oslo (UiO) from 1998 and is a specialist in neurology from 2007. He is a senior consultant at the Department of Neurology, Oslo University Hospital with a special interest in MS patients and attended the PhD-project in January 2012.
The title of his PhD thesis is "Clinical and epidemiological studies of immigrants with multiple sclerosis in Norway ."
In the first part of the project he is studying differences in disease severity and oligoclonal band status between different ethnical groups with MS in Oslo. The second part is a registry based prevalence study of immigrant groups in Norway, where differences in disease severity is measured by prescription of disease modifying drugs.
Main supervisor: Elisabeth Gulowsen Celius (MD, PhD.)
Co-supervisors: Hanne F. Harbo (MD, PhD) and Stine Marit Moen (MD, PhD).
