Neuro Neuromuscular Review Course

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 3rd Neuro Neuromuscular Review Course will be held on October 25, 26, 2019 at the Montreal Neurological Institute and 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, radiculopathies, 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 Montreal Neurological Institute & Hospital is a McGill University research and teaching institute; delivering the highest quality of care to patients, as part of the Neuroscience Mission of the McGill University Health Centre. The Neuro is proud to be a Killam Institution, supported by the Killam Trusts.
