Visiting Professor Program
Welcome to the MDS Visiting Professor Program webpage. This program supports the travel of one international expert who is an MDS member to an underserved area for the purposes of education and intellectual exchange.
The MDS Visiting Professor Program supports members in conducting teaching seminars or giving grand rounds in local hospitals, and/or providing input for further development in the field of movement disorders in an underserved country.
Visits may consist of one of these activities or a combination of all three. An honorarium and airfare reimbursement are provided through the MDS International Secretariat.
Once your application has been received it will be reviewed by the Regional Education Committee, Regional Executive Committee and MDS Education Committee. The MDS Secretariat will inform applicant of the results of this review, and provide instructions on how to proceed if it is approved.
