Dr. Nicolas Dupré of Laval University, Dr. Karine Garneau of Université de Montréal, and the members of our organizing committee are pleased to announce that the 7th National Neuromuscular Review Course will be held in person on October 25-26, 2024, at The Neuro.


Register here

Registration is free for residents, $350 CAD for fellows, and $500 CAD for neurologists, specialists, and professionals.


Who should attend

The review course is aimed at PGY2, PGY3, and fellows from Canada, the US, and South America, as well as practicing community neurologists interested in a comprehensive review of the current principles and practices dealing with neuromuscular diseases. 

Benefits of attending

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. We believe this program will assist all neurology residents in preparing for their examination. 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.

Course topics

The course will present experts who will provide a state-of-the-art overview of topics such as motor neuron diseases, pediatrics, neuropathies, neuromuscular junction diseases and myopathies. The speakers will cover basic clinical concepts from diagnosis to therapeutics, from genomics to immunology. The program will include examination scenarios for those participants wishing to gain experience in examination situations.

Overall Program Learning Objectives

  • By the end of the review course, participants will be able to analyze the clinical presentation of prevalent neurological disorders.
  • Elaborate an investigation plan when suspecting a neuromuscular disorder.
  • After completing the review course, participants will be proficient in reviewing the management strategies for specific neuromuscular disorders.
