10th MDS-PAS School for Young Neurologists
Carlos Cosentino, MD, FAAN
Chief of the Movement Disorders Unit,
Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Neurologicas,
The intention is to increase general enthusiasm for movement disorders as an exciting discipline in the field of neurology, and to raise the level of expertise such that students will be able to better manage their patients in clinical practice. Attendance to the school is based on an application acceptance. If you are eligible and interested, please apply to experience the following dynamic education.
- A mixture of didactic lectures with videos, small group student case presentations and a video dinner where faculty will discuss the "Many Faces of Dystonia"
- Guided live examinations of patients with a variety of movement disorders
- An interactive course with ample opportunity for discussion and networking
- Students will each submit a video case presentation of their own as the course approaches
- The emphasis on active learning, with direct examination of patients and videos, will help you learn movement disorders principles very quickly.
How to visually recognize and classify movement disorders; parkinsonism; hyperkinetic movement disorders (such as chorea, dystonia, myoclonus, tics); and ataxia.
What To Expect
We will discuss clinically relevant pathophysiology and neuroimaging, hoping to prepare young neurologists for a field that is quickly changing.
We welcome a range of familiarity with movement disorders. Some students have little experience with movement disorders and would like to improve their comfort level and approach and other students intend to focus their practice on movement disorders and wish to learn at a higher level. Both groups will find the School valuable and enjoyable.
Language of the Course
The course will be presented in Spanish with some talks presented in English. No translation services will be available.
If you are a movement disorders fellow or have completed neurology residency within the past 5 years, you may apply. Those who have attended a School for Young Neurologists in the past are ineligible.
- Examine a patient with a movement disorder
- Diagnose straightforward movement disorder cases
- Propose a differential diagnosis on more complex movement disorders patients
- Compose and present a movement disorders case history
