Deadline for case submissions: December 15

Video Case Submisson

MDS Members and non-members from within the Asian and Oceanian section are invited to submit interesting and educational video cases that they wish to present during the Video Tournament. Presentations will entail a brief clinical description and a well-edited video of no more than 2 minutes. All cases should have a known diagnosis that will be shared at the end of the presentation.  At the time of submission, a designated contact person will be identified who will present the case during the event if selected. This presenter should be a fellow, junior doctor, or junior MDS Member.

Accepted cases will be considered for publication in the Movement Disorders: Clinical Practice online and standard journal issue. Accepted submissions will be subject to an individual, standard peer-review process.

The AOPMC Video Tournament Committee will randomly select geographically diverse teams based on submissions. Each country is encouraged to nominate at least three participants to participate and participants should be trainees or junior faculty younger than 35 or within 3 years of a consultant appointment.

All competitors will receive an MDS Certificate of Participation.
