24th Annual Course: A Comprehensive Review of Movement Disorders for the Clinical Practitioner

27 Jul 2014 to 31 Jul 2014


This course is designed for general neurologists, neurology residents, and others in the health profession who wish to enhance their knowledge of movement disorders. This program will deal with classification of these disorders, their differential diagnosis and treatment. The goals of the course are twofold: to introduce the field to the novice, and to increase the level of knowledge of current practitioners in the field. This material will be 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.

Participants are encouraged to bring interesting cases from their own practice for presentation during the "Night Video Rounds" session.

At the conclusion of the activity, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize, diagnose and classify the various dyskinesias
  • Differentiate Atypical Parkinsonism from Parkinson Disease (PD)
  • Utilize new treatments for patients with PD and dyskinesias
  • Recognize and treat psychogenic movement disorders

The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
