Neurology Update Conference

Oct 30, 2020

In this last week of October, the Open Medical Institute was excited to host yet another group of motivated physicians at Schloss Arenberg in Salzburg. Seven fellows from Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania and Slovakia were able to attend the annual Weill Cornell Seminar in Neurology in person, while another 17 fellows from ten different countries joined the course remotely.

The OMI seminar was led by course director Dr. Matthew E. Fink from Weill Cornell Medicine and co-course director Dr. Eugen Trinka from the General Hospital of Salzburg. Together with 13 American and Austrian faculty members, they provided an excellent learning environment for the fellows.

The week’s goal was to provide the participants with cutting-edge knowledge in the field of neurology, but also to show them ways in which they can improve the state of their practice at home. Therefore, the faculty prepared an intense yet rewarding mixture of 19 lectures, and three sessions of case presentations in which the fellows were invited to share their experiences. The topics discussed ranged from epilepsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, chronic spasticity, and migraine to neurological consequences of COVID-19 infections.

The Open Medical Institute was pleased to have such an outstanding group of faculty and fellows and looks forward to working with them in the future!
