Movement Disorders Lecture series

This clinically oriented session will allow the fellow to present rare and/or interesting movement disorders cases. Video presentation of MD phenomenology will be studied. This session will also allow the discussion of cases and application of evidence-based medicine to the care of our patients.

Clinical Case Conferences

The MD fellow will be involved in the preparation and presentation of 12 main topics about movement disorders for UConn Neurology residents. Topics will range from anatomy to clinical diagnosis and management of common involuntary movements.

Neurology Grand Rounds

Once a year, the fellow should prepare a topic to be presented at the Neurology Grand Rounds. The topic should be relevant to the non-specialist neurologists, neurology residents, medical students and health care providers attending this formal session. This is an important step in the preparation to a career in academic institutions and will help the fellow feel comfortable presenting to the public.
