BGS Scotland


Parkinsons Masterclass

The Parkinson’s MasterClasses form an innovative educational programme established by the Movement Disorder Section of the BGS.  The Masterclasses aim to provide a structured training programme for senior members of the medical profession who seek formal training in both the clinical and managerial aspects of running a ‘Parkinson’s service’.

The educational style of the Academy has been commended by the Department of Health (England) and by Parkinson’s UK for providing unique clinical skills enhancement and service development.

Not only does the Academy provide updates on the evidence base for managing Parkinson’s and practical support on how to develop a Parkinson’s service, but course graduates also highlight the invaluable opportunity they have to establish an ongoing network of peer support – not just in Parkinson’s but in other, rarer, movement disorders too.
