Being able to participate at the CMSC annual meeting has been a wonderful and extremely helpful experience. It has further increased my interest in the field of MS, realizing the true scale of ongoing MS research and innovation in the management. I am considering a fellowship in MS and participating in this meeting has further reinforced that idea.
The symposiums guiding decision making towards MS management in severe progressive disease states and selection of pharmacological agents were very helpful since those are the most challenging decisions faced as a physician treating MS patients.
The information and knowledge I have gained from the meeting, I hope to share with my colleagues back in my home institute through discussions and lectures. I have already had small group discussions and talks with my co-residents and students about the latest updates in MS management and treatment options available and I hope to continue to do so.
I will continue my residency at The University of Texas Medical Branch.
