E-Learning & CMEAs 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:

Journal CME

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 credits possible per course: 1

Coffee Break CME

No time for CME?  No problem!  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.

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.
