The 2019 “Aspen Course” is the highly successful program previously of Columbia University from 1991 until it came to MDS in 2016. The tradition of the “Aspen Course” is a rite of passage for every Movement Disorder fellow. While the legend of this program is that anyone serious about the field of Movement Disorders has taken the course at least once.
This program will discuss the classification of these disorders, their differential diagnosis, and their treatment. The course curriculum also covers the phenomenology, pathophysiology, pathogenesis, epidemiology, genetics, and other aspects of the entire field of Movement Disorders. This material will be presented in sessions utilizing didactic lectures, clinical discussion, case presentation, video demonstrations and panel discussions.
Participants are encouraged to bring interesting cases from their own practice for presentation during the “Night Video Rounds” session.
This course is designed for general neurologists, neurology residents, Movement Disorders fellows, and other health professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge of Movement Disorders. Additional programs such as luncheons and professional development are planned for fellows.
