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 Edmond J. Safra Program in Parkinson's Disease and the Morton and Gloria Shulman Movement Disorders Clinic. 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 have one of the largest and best known post-graduate Fellowship Programs in Movement Disorders in the world. We also train medical students, and residents in Medicine, Neurology, Geriatrics, Genetics and other fields. In addition to physicians, we help train nurses and allied health care specialists.
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.
