MDS-UPDRS Registration

The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society has established the MDS-UPDRS: MDS-Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale Certificate Program. This training program allows participants to learn about the use of this scale, see examples of a rater administering the test to patients, and to view examples of the rating items for the Motor Examination (Part III). There is an official certificate exam at the end of the training program.
