The institutions on this page are located within the Pan American Section and have been recognized by the MDS-PAS as offering established Visiting Trainee Grant programs in the field of Movement Disorders.  Please note that this list is not comprehensive and that applicants may apply for programs outside of those listed below.

In selecting an institution, please note that the MDS-PAS Visiting Trainee Grant is intended to concentrate on applicants from Central and South America who do not have access to Movement Disorders fellowships and training in their own countries. 

Further, in the spirit of integration of all PAS regions, the program will also be offered to North Americans who would like to train in other parts of the PAS, provided that they have adequate fluency in the host country language.  Applicants from the United States or Canada may not apply for a fellowship in the United States or Canada.
