Curriculum Group Wraps up Inaugural Fellows’ Training Series

Our national neuromuscular lecture series launched last August 2022 has just wrapped up! The series consisted of a weekly (38 weeks) virtual Royal College CPD-accredited curriculum for neuromuscular fellows presented by subject-matter experts, developed by the curriculum working group together with the directors of fellowship programs across Canada 

In total, 33 neuromuscular fellows participated in the inaugural lecture series, from adult and pediatric neuromuscular and physiatry fellowship programs from across Canada. The pilot lecture series received extremely positive feedback, with fellows sharing that the series was informative, applicable to their practice, and indicated a high degree of satisfaction overall. 

Building on this successful collaboration between Canadian fellowship programs, the planning committee is currently preparing the second iteration of the program, set to begin in mid-August 2023 for a new cohort of Canadian neuromuscular fellows.
