Dr. Nic Dupré of Laval University, Dr. Angela Genge of The Neuro and Dr. Ariel Breiner of The Ottawa Hospital and the members of our organizing committee are pleased to announce that the 4th National Neuromuscular Review Course will be held on October 22, 23, 2021 at the Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital, McGill University. The review course is aimed at neurology Residents and Fellows from across 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, 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.
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.
The review course will be held in a mixed format, with some participants attending in person and all content available live on Zoom for interactive sessions. In-person attendance will follow public health advisory and pandemic evolution, with priority for PGY 4-5 residents to attend in person.
Registration is available here at no cost for residents however registration is required in order to attend.
