Course Description

The second MDS-ES annual Winter School was held in Tartu, Estonia, March 1-3, 2012. Winter School is a newly offered MDS course following on the increasing interest in and success of the MDS summer school courses. Young neurologists who are interested in training in the field of movement disorders, as well as those who already have some experience in movement disorders, are taught by an MDS-ES international faculty of senior movement disorder specialists.

Day one focused on the basics of Parkinsonism and will include expert guided patient examinations following a large-group lecture. Day two focused on Hyperkinetic Movement Disorders and participants were not only able to examine patients, but had the opportunity to share their own patient videos with their fellow participants. Day three covered complex issues in movement disorders, including gait disorders, cognitive function in movement disorders, and movement disorders in sleep.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop participants were able to:

  • Examine a patient with a movement disorder
  • Reach a diagnosis on straightforward movement disorders cases
  • Propose a differential diagnosis on more complex movement disorders patients
  • Present a movement disorders case history
  • Design, review and modify a patient treatment plan

Recommended Audience

This course was recommended for trainees in movement disorders, and for young neurologists, under the age of 40 who have not decided upon an area of specialization within neurology.
