Training Dates & Locations

The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty program hosts several trainings each year at university-based movement disorder centers. Nurse faculty are selected through a competitive application process.

Our program model has changed since COVID-19.  Every scholar now participates in 9 hours of self-paced virtual educational modules. Following the self-paced modules, scholars will choose either to:

OPTION 1: Go to a Parkinson’s Disease Clinic for 3 days of in person learning of advanced content, followed by 2 clinical days;


OPTION 2: Participate in two four-hour live zoom sessions for advanced content after which clinicals are scheduled separately and individually at a Parkinson’s Disease Clinic.

Fall 2022 Program

  1. All scholars who enroll and are accepted will be given a link to the self-paced modules (9 hours) which must be completed prior to the advanced content days.  Scholars can start and stop the modules, repeat sections, etc. at their own pace.
