Course Description

Our goal 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.

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, while 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. 

The course will be led by internationally recognized movement disorder experts.
