MDS Video Challenge

The goal of this session is for delegates to learn from a series of unusual patients
and observe how senior experts approach a challenging case.
A world-renowned panel of Movement Disorders experts guide delegates through unique
Movement Disorder cases as they are presented by representatives from Movement Disorder centers around the world. MDS does not allow exhibitors and guests to attend this event.


Young Delegates Networking Event

This event will provide an excellent opportunity for delegates who are in the beginning
phase of their career to network and socialize with other up-and-coming experts in the field. MDS does not allow exhibitors and guests to attend this event.

(More information on the Young Delegates Networking Event and a link to the Event will be available on this webpage at a later date.)
