Clinical Research Curriculum Development Working Group Update
The NMD4C is committed to educating the next generation of NMD stakeholders, and endeavors to optimize the training of neuromuscular clinicians in Canada through standardization of a fellowship curriculum, preparing an application for an Area of Focused Competency (AFC) by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada in the field of Neuromuscular Medicine, and holding quarterly CPD-accredited NM Mystery Case Rounds.
Through collaboration with the neuromuscular fellowship program directors, the clinical research curriculum development working group have identified an opportunity to promote the Canadian NM fellowship training opportunities by creating a centralized list of programs. The working group have collected information from each fellowship program (14 adult and pediatric) to establish a centralized list of neuromuscular fellowships, hosted on the NMD4C website. This list will provide those who wish to pursue training in the field of NMD access to all the opportunities available to them in Canada and will be maintained and updated on an ongoing basis.
If you are aware of any fellowship programs we have overlooked, please contact us so we can include them!
If you are an early-career clinician, researcher, or trainee, we also invite you to share your experiences with the network by authoring a blog for the NMD4C!
