Taiwan Movement Disorder Society

The Taiwan Movement Disorder Society (TMDS) was officially founded on April 7, 2007. The aim of TMDS is to integrate the neurology in Taiwan, boost the research and education of movement disorders, as well as provide world standard medical care for patients with movement disorders through organization of a patient society in Taiwan. The same effort is also intended to set up the Parkinson’s disease medical treatment networks to make comprehensive care for the patients possible. The successful founding of the TMDS should be attributed to the persistent leadership of Prof. Ruey-Meei Wu, the Director of Centre of Parkinson’s and Movement Disorder and Professor of National Taiwan University Hospital, alongside a number of senior neurologists in Taiwan.
