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.
- Ensure that the intended host country is eligible to participate in the Visiting Professor Program by checking the US Department of State Travel Advisories website.
- Review program procedures and submit application at least four months in advance of the requested program date.
- Keep in mind any visa restrictions and subsequent time restraints for invited faculty.
