MDS-ES Call for Hosts (2020-2022)

The MDS-ES Education Committee is currently accepting applications to serve as a host for upcoming MDS-ES Schools for Young Neurologists for 2020-2022. The Schools for Young Neurologists have been an essential program in the MDS-European Section educational portfolio since 2008.  Serving as host for an MDS-ES School for Young Neurologists is a prestigious honor, and we invite you to apply to serve the Society through this unique opportunity for training the next generation of Movement Disorder specialists.

The European Section presents two annual schools for young neurologists, a Winter School typically held in February, and a Summer School, typically held in July. Due to the highly interactive nature of the School programs, a number of important criteria need to be met by potential host centers. Schools for Young Neurologists are three days in duration and include lectures, clinical examination rounds, and video presentations. Evening events are held on the first two evenings – an educational video dinner and a social dinner.
