Eastern Neuromuscular Course Review

(From https://www.mcgill.ca/neuro/events/eastern-neuromuscular-course-review)

Dr. Nic Dupré of Laval University, Dr. Angela Genge of The Neuro and the members of our organizing committee are pleased to announce that the 2nd Eastern Neuromuscular Review Course will be held on October 27, 2018 at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, McGill Univesity. The review course is aimed at neurology Residents and Fellows from eastern Canada as well as at practicing community neurologists who are interested in a comprehensive review of the current principles and practices dealing with neuromuscular diseases.

This comprehensive review course may serve to fulfill part of the preparation requirements for trainees seeking to complete the Royal College Examinations in Neurology and in related fields.

The course will present experts who will provide a state-of-the-art overview of topics such as motor neuron diseases, radiculopathies, neuropathies, neuromuscular junction diseases and myopathies.  The speakers will cover basic clinical concepts from diagnosis to therapeutics, from genomics to immunology.  The course will be CME-certified, which means that staff neurologists as well as clinical Fellows can also benefit. The program will include examination scenarios for those participants wishing to gain experience in examination situations.

We believe this program will assist all Neurology Residents in preparing for their examination. Moreover, the course will bring community neurologists up to date on neuromuscular diseases so that ultimately they can improve the diagnosis and care of their patients.
