It is my pleasure, as MDS-European Section Chair, to welcome you to the MDS-European Section. MDS-ES is the premier European organization dedicated to disseminating knowledge and understanding about Movement Disorders within the field of Neurology. My first MDS activity was the MDS Congress in Vienna in 1996, and I have enjoyed the MDS community of education, science and improvement of patient care for over twenty-five years since that first meeting.
MDS-ES continues to provide high quality and relevant online education to our colleagues in movement disorders and neuroscience, plus trainees, young neurologist and allied health specialists. We are also placing a priority on increased engagement with the European network of national movement disorder societies and MDS Affiliate Member Societies and continuation of fruitful collaborations with the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) and European Huntington’s Disease Network (EHDN) to facilitate communication and education to trainees and the general neurological community
Thank you for your continued interest and engagement in MDS-ES activities. Should you have any questions or would like to provide your ideas/feedback, please contact the MDS-ES Regional Manager, Heather Vitale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With very best regards,
All MDS members living and working in Europe are automatically members of the European section of the Society and are warmly welcomed to participate in the Section’s activities and to contribute to the development of the Movement Disorders specialty in Europe.
The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society’s European Section (MDS-ES) is the premier European organization dedicated to disseminating knowledge and understanding about Movement Disorders within the field of Neurology.
The MDS-ES encourages general neurologists to develop an interest in Movement Disorders by offering live educational events, funding for underdeveloped regions within Europe and through collaborations with professional societies and patient organizations within Europe. The MDS-ES is responsible for the Movement Disorders program for the newly formed European Academy of Neurology, and has recently formed an agreement with the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) for their Movement Disorder programming as well.
The MDS-ES encourages and facilitates education of junior members through the annual MDS-ES Summer School and Winter School for Young Neurologists, which gives attendees the opportunity to assess Movement Disorders patients under the guidance of recognized experts in the field, as well as present their own case studies. In addition, the MDS-ES grants fellowship opportunities on an annual basis to four qualified fellows to study at Movement Disorders centers in Europe. More information on all available opportunities with the MDS-ES is available on the MDS website.
