Movement Disorders Fellowship
Training the next generation of movement disorders neurologists.
The Parkinson's Disease & Movement Disorders Center at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is a National Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence and an internationally recognized leader in basic and clinical research and education in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and other movement disorders. It is one of the few centers that not only excels in all three domains but also demonstrates the ability to translate groundbreaking lab research into clinical trials. We strongly believe that training the next generation of movement disorders neurologists requires the highest level of expertise and commitment to a supportive and stimulating environment.
