Comprehensive Review of Movement Disorders for the Clinical Practitioner

The Comprehensive Review of Movement Disorders for the Clinical Practitioner is a CME-accredited course directed primarily to neurologists in practice and in training and other health care professionals who wish to enhance their knowledge of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. Held annually in Aspen, Colorado since 1990, the program is designed to comprehensively cover the phenomenology, classification, differential diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of these disorders.

The educational material is presented in four morning and two evening sessions utilizing didactic lectures and videotape demonstrations. The format of the program is intended to provide ample time for questions and discussion following each presentation and each session. Participants are encouraged to bring interesting cases from their own practice for presentation during the "Night Video Rounds" session.

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), designates this educational activity for a maximum of 25.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. CME credits from activities presented by ACCME accredited providers may be used toward American Osteopathic Association (AOA) Category 2-A requirements.
