Welcome from the Chair
Angelo Antonini, MD, PhD
University of Padua
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.
During my term we will continue offerings a robust variety of educational activities for neurologists and movement disorder specialists. In addition we aim to establish a network of allied health experts from the different countries in Europe to harmonize quality education across regions and languages.
A key way to achieve this goal will be to strengthen our identity in Europe and increase Membership by better and more focused collaboration with our colleagues from national Movement Disorders Societies through the Affiliate Membership opportunities. We also aim to continue our collaborative relationships with the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), to facilitate communication and teaching about Movement Disorders to trainees and to the general neurological community.
The first opportunity to meet you will be at the 2020 ES Summit: Therapeutic Milestones in Parkinson’s Disease in Venice, March 18-20, 2020, and later at the 2020 MDS International Congress in Philadelphia, PA, USA, September 13-17.
Thank you for your continued interest and engagement in MDS-ES activities.
With very best regards,
MDS-ES Visiting Trainee Grant Program
The ES Visiting Trainee Grant program offers a special opportunity for one resident, fellow, or recent graduate of a program in neurology to receive a clinical or research grant to travel outside his or her home country for a traineeship in movement disorders.
MDS-ES Outreach Programs
The MDS Outreach Programs are specifically designed to bring movement disorders education to those areas of the world where it is most needed and often least available.
MDS LEAP was established to provide a leadership training program to support the growth, development and success of young movement disorder specialists.
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.
