Department of Neurology Continuing Medical Education (CME)
We're committed to providing high-quality Continuing Medical Education opportunities to physicians, researchers and health care professionals locally, regionally and nationally.
The University of Kansas Medical Center Departments of Neurology and Continuing Education and Professional Development sponsor several review courses throughout the year for Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit.
Neuromuscular Review Courses
These neuromuscular courses are designed for neurologists and other physicians treating neuromuscular disorders and provide an up-to-date review of clinical issues related to the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disease.
Muscle Study Group (MSG)
The Muscle Study Group (MSG) is an international consortium of scientific investigators from academic and research centers committed to the cooperative planning, implementation, analysis and reporting of controlled clinical trials and of other research for muscle and other neuromuscular diseases.
MSG aims to advance knowledge about the causes, pathogenesis, epidemiology and clinical manifestations of muscle disease and related neuromuscular disorders and to develop and implement strategies to examine promising therapeutic interventions.
Neurology Update Course
Neurology Update is presented by academic-affiliated physicians and provides an up-to-date review of clinical issues related to neuromuscular disease, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, pain and medical errors.
Introduction to Clinical Research
This course will provide a basic and broad overview to clinical research. The student will gain an understanding of how to develop clinical research questions including protocol design and the factors that should be considered in initiating a clinical research study. This will include biostatistical considerations, the recruitment of study participants, regulatory issues, and data management, and defining measures and instruments. Students will complete and submit a protocol to the IRB and begin work on their study. Faculty support and collaboration will be available up to 6 months after completion of the course for ongoing efforts to complete the project. It is required that you have a research idea and mentor before enrolling.
