The meeting aided in my career path by offering an opportunity to review the most current treatment strategies and drugs in development. Other useful information included the in-depth session on symptom management.
Professional networking opportunities were plentiful, as a consequence of the numerous prominent faculty discussion leaders and meeting fellows. Information acquired during the meeting is easily translated into useful handouts for residents and other general neurologist for shared decision making.
The sessions of most value were “Multiple Sclerosis: Mistaken Diagnosis” , “Clinical Application of Disease-Modifying Therapies”, and Workshop B “Issues in Diagnosis and Treatment”. These sessions reviewed some of the most challenging aspects of caring for MS patients.
I will be completing my final year of Neurology residency at UCLA during 2014/2015 academic year prior to starting MS/Neuroimmunology Fellowship at UCSF.
