Medical Education and Resources

MDA is offering a series of educational programs developed for clinicians who manage and treat individuals with neuromuscular disease. The Medical Education team has partnered with the country’s top thought leaders and experts to create a series of educational programs including CME certified grand round webinars, peer-to-peer educational slide decks and case studies.

The available offerings can be found on our newly launched MDA Professional Medical Education Hub. This platform allows users to register once and explore and access all the neuromuscular disease programs MDA has available to date.
