The meeting is also used for discussing interesting/challenging cases, journal club, and external speaker presentations on topics relevant to the multidisciplinary care for our patients (e.g. urology, sleep, PMR, psychiatry, neuroradiology, pathology, etc.).

Recurring neuroimmunology presentations for residents. Usually presented by one of the NI faculty or fellow, providing an opportunity to develop teaching skills and material in neuroimmunology.

Joint Neuroradiology conference

Monthly 1 hour session. Attended by various faculty from Neuroradiology and Neurology, NR fellows and neurology residents, this conference is a great forum to discuss interesting cases with great neuroradiological findings, most of which are autoimmune or infectious causes. This is an outstanding educational opportunity for the NI fellow to lead and moderate the discussion on neuroimmunology cases.
