As part of the mission of MDS – to advance the education of medical professionals worldwide, improve diagnosis and treatment, and encourage research in Parkinson's disease and all other movement disorders – the Society is proud to offer a full spectrum of e-learning educational opportunities to members and non-members alike.

All MDS e-learning courses are presented using Learning Management System (LMS) software, to easily organize and customize delivery of content of all MDS courses. This new system creates a single portal that houses all MDS educational activities, and allows all users to review their progress, retrieve certificates and keep track of their e-learning CME credits.

The LMS currently includes the following activities:

MDS Fundamentals Course

The Fundamentals Course Series consists of over 30 video presentations detailing an overview of various aspects and clinical approaches to the evaluation and management of common movement disorders. All clinicians are welcome to review this free educational opportunity, in particular residents who may be looking for information on the specialty. Below you can find a summary of presentation topics and speakers.

No time for CME?  No problem, the Coffee Break CME is specially designed for the busy clinician. For physicians who care for Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Movement Disorders patients, continuing education is critical to providing the best care possible.

This program provides information in a modular format where each module is focused on a single topic that can be completed in a short period of time while providing the clinician with updated information that is relevant to his or her practice. Both standard approaches and new advances are highlighted.

Device-Aided Medical Therapies

1 CME Credit Available
1 hour in length
Number of Courses Offered: 10

Device-Aided Medical Therapies in Parkinson's disease series was designed by a panel of worldwide specialists around the main practical issues involved with device aided treatments of Parkinson’s disease. Each module will take approximately 1 hour to complete.

This course series, provided as 10 separate modules, addresses issues such as identifying patients who may or may not benefit from the treatment, recognizing the titration and the monitoring of clinical response, recognizing the main complications and managing them, and comparing these treatments with conventional oral dopaminergic therapies, as well as against each other.

Online Journal CME

Online Journal CME courses derive from specially selected articles from the monthly Movement Disorders Journal. Articles are paired with questions that when answered correctly, give the participant CME credit. Journal CME courses are added often and removed after 1 year so as to maintain the accuracy and relevancy of topics covered. CME journal articles are posted within 45 days of journal publication.
