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 seven faculty neurologists working with a number of Fellows and nurses. We are a national Parkinson’s Foundation Centre of Excellence and internationally renowned for our research program.
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.
The 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.
