Celebrating 25 Years in Aspen - Parkinson Disease & Movement Disorders Course

Drs. Hallett, Jankovic and Fahn, along with BCM PDCMDC fellows, Drs. Vijayakumar, Tarakad and Lotia, during the 2015 "Aspen course".

The Comprehensive Review of Movement Disorders for the Clinical Practitioner held annually in Aspen, Colorado has just celebrated its 25th anniversary!

This year, Steven Skadron, Mayor of Aspen, addressed the participants and congratulated the organizers on the 25th anniversary of the course. Watch the video for the historical review of the course and the mayor's remarks.

The CME-accredited course is 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. The program is designed to comprehensively cover the phenomenology, classification, differential diagnosis, pathogenesis and treatment of these disorders. The format of the program is intended to provide ample time for questions and discussion following each presentation and each session.

Columbia University has been the CME credit provider for the past 25 years, but course is being transitioned to the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (IPMDS) who will be the CME provider in the future. Besides Drs. Stanley Fahn, Joseph Jankovic, and Mark Hallett, all past IPMDS presidents, additional faculty will be included in the future courses.
