About the Program
The Movement Disorders Fellowship at The Gardner Center for Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders at the University of Cincinnati offers post-residency neurologists an intensive training in the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders as well as in the comprehensive and multidisciplinary care of these patients. In addition, the fellowship offers instruction in the methodologies needed to conduct research in movement disorders including experience in fellow-initiated research projects as well as the opportunity to participate in our active clinical trials portfolio. Research projects, contributing to book chapters and review articles, and other scholarly endeavors can be part of the fellow’s time in both the first and the second years of the fellowship. Protected time for both research and education is part of the fellowship’s commitment to scholarship, with ample time left for developing expertise in clinical care. Multiple regularly scheduled conferences and didactics include biweekly Video Rounds, DBS surgery conference, Journal Club, weekly Cognitive-Movement didactic conference, and others. Clinical opportunities include regular mentored time in fellows’ clinic, botulinum toxin injection clinic, DBS programming, and multidisciplinary Huntington’s disease genetics clinic. All of these combine to provide a strong foundation of movement disorders learning, which translates into successful clinical and academic careers.
