2nd Middle East Camp for PD, Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation
2nd Middle East Camp for Parkinson's, Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation:
From Neurodegeneration to Neuroregeneration
Dubai, UAE - November 19-21, 2015
The 2nd Middle East Camp for Parkinson's, Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation: From Neurodegeneration to Neuroregeneration supports the fields of Parkinson's disease and Movement Disorders which are currently under served in the Middle East region, a region which spans numerous countries and includes a population of over 500 million inhabitants. The understanding of Parkinson's disease and Movement Disorders is rapidly evolving and numerous therapeutic medical and surgical treatment options are available on the market.
The Second Middle East Camp for Parkinson's, Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation is the follow-up to the popular First Middle East Camp that took place in Dubai in 2014. The course is intended to provide up-to-date discussions on Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders and all available advance therapies in the field. The course will also focus on unmet needs in more detail based on course evaluations.
At the conclusion of this activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:
Explain the clinical phenomenology of motor and non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease
Explain clinical diagnosis and role of imaging in Parkinson’s disease
Recite the treatments available for the management of motor and non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease
Explain clinical phenomenology of non-Parkinsonian Movement Disorders
Apply treatment of non-Parkinsonian Movement Disorders
This course is recommended for Movement disorder neurologists, General neurologists, Geriatricians, Neurosurgeons, Allied health professionals and Neurologists-in-training.

Dr. Jawad A. Bajwa is the director for Parkinson's Disease, Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration program at National Neuroscience Institute, King Fahd Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He obtained his medical degree from King Edward Medical University, Lahore, Pakistan.
He completed his Neurology residency at Georgetown University, Washington, DC, USA. He completed a multiyear clinical fellowship in Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) with special emphasis on intraoperative neurophysiological mapping for DBS surgeries, basic science and clinical research in Movement Disorders and translational research in the field of Neuromodulation at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH, USA. Dr, Bajwa also developed and directed the first community based Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders center in Saint Paul, MN, USA.
Dr. Bajwa's research group is primarily interested in exploring abnormal cortical mechanisms in Parkinson's disease and movement disorders using Magnetoencephalography (MEG). His group is also focused on understanding mechanisms of DBS to develop better neuromodulatory therapies through endogenous neuromodulation, neurofeedback, endovascular neurostimulation and closed loop systems using MEG.
Dr. Bajwa has authored many chapters and papers and has been funded by nonprofit organizations as well as government institutions. Dr. Bajwa serves as a reviewer for neurology journals and as an invited member and faculty for national and international neurological societies and scientific meetings. He is currently serving on the MDS-AOS Education Committee.
