Clinical Assessment Trainings

The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society has established traning materials for select rating scales. Learn about the use of each scale, see examples of a rater administering the test to patients, and to view examples of the rating items. 

Certificate Programs

The Training & Certificate Programs for MDS scales include an examination, which will grant you a Certificate of Completion once you earn a passing score. Case exercises are also included to test your ability to administer the scales.
