Course Description

The MDS-European Section School for Young Neurologists is an opportunity for young neurologists who are interested in specializing in Movement Disorders to receive in-depth instruction from internationally-recognized Movement Disorders experts.

Topics will focus on parkinsonism, hyperkinetic disorders and complex issues in movement disorders. Students will participate in lectures with videos covering fundamental topic talks, virtual patient examinations, and bring your own case presentations from students.  Interactive components will be heavily featured. A working knowledge of English is required as well as working knowledge of the diagnosis and general management of various movement disorders.

Interactive Components

The ES Virtual School for Young Neurologists will include lectures with video examples to present core topics.  Additional Interactive components will be incorporated to supplement the lectures with live question and answer sessions, panel discussions to share practical advice and clinical pearls, additional video case presentations, and small group breakouts where needed.  Students will present their own video case in a small group session with a faculty mentor. A selected group of students will present their cases to the full course.

Target Audience
