Bring Your Own Patient Video Presentation Competition Instructions: A 2-step process
Submission for this competition is optional.
Although the main aim of this exercise is educational, we have applied to MDS for a grant to enable the author of the top presentation to receive a complimentary registration to attend the 21st International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders, to be held June 4-8, 2017 in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Only those selected to attend the course will be provided with a link to submit a Letter of Intent for the Bring Your Own Patient Video Presentation Competition.
Submit a Letter of Intent for the Bring Your Own Patient Video Presentation Competition for consideration. Up to two different cases can be submitted in one submission. Cases submitted must have a known diagnosis. The goal of this session is for participants to learn from a series of unusual, very interesting patient cases and to see how senior experts approach these types of challenging cases.
The course directors will review each submission. The submission deadline will vary based on when your notification/acceptance is confirmed between December 19, 2016 - February 17, 2017. Notifications of results of Letter of Intent submissions will be e-mailed between December 26, 2016 - February 17, 2017.
