The Movement Disorders Clinic was established in the 1980s and has grown from a single neurologist to the largest clinic of its kind in Canada, with nine faculty neurologists working with a number of Fellows and nurses. Thanks to generous philanthropic support, we are now entitled as the Morton and Gloria Shulman Movement Disorders Clinic and the Edmond J. Safra Program in Parkinson’s Disease. We have also been awarded a Parkinson’s Foundation Center of Excellence designation due to our international reputation for excellence in research, teaching and patient care.
We provide clinical care and have many studies going on at any one time. Patients at our centre have the opportunity to participate in research and feel part of the process of finding answers. Without this kind of participation of our patients, we cannot make progress to improve treatments or find cures.
We not only teach future doctors, nurses and allied health care specialists, we provide specialized training for surgeons and radiologists from around the world.
Krembil Neuroscience Centre is one of the most highly sought after places to train for medical professionals looking to specialize in conditions of the brain, spine and eyes.
As an institution that has the capacity and expertise for training others in the field of movement disorders, we believe this endeavour makes us strive to do better for patients and perform more ground-breaking research.
