CSMC Movement Disorders Fellowship

 

Description

The goal of the Movement Disorders Fellowship is to provide clinical training, teaching skills and research experience. The length of the program is one year, with the option of adding a second year to pursue research, with approval. Such clinical expertise will be achieved in different settings (outpatient, inpatient and Emergency Department) and will include diagnostic evaluation, treatment, management, counseling and prevention. In this process, the fellow will be an integral part of the movement disorders clinic, conducting evaluations of new and established patients and learning the intricacies of the diagnosis of the various subtypes of movement disorders. The fellow will be encouraged to take an active role in structuring patient management and learning interventional therapies, including pharmacotherapy, botulinum toxin injections and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).
