Parkinson Society Canada wants to ensure that each Canadian with Parkinson’s receives appropriate medical expertise, drug treatment, support services, continuous care, educational resources, respect, dignity, help and hope. This fellowship represents the first step in achieving part of our goal of ensuring that these critical elements in the day-to-day management of Parkinson’s are accessible and available.
The Clinical Movement Disorders fellowship program is a strategic initiative to encourage promising young clinicians to enter into clinical training in the subspecialty of Movement Disorders, which will include Parkinson’s disease. The purpose of this post-residency training is to provide expertise in the diagnosis and management of Parkinson’s disease and may include other movement disorders. Clinical training is the largest component of this hands-on program, but it could include an element of research.
Applicants must have completed a recognized postgraduate training porgram in Neurology before the start of the proposed post-graduate Movement Disorder program and be eligible to practice in Canada. Please review the Clinical Movement Disorder Fellowship (CMDF) Program’s RFA document for more details.
