10th Annual Neuromuscular Colloquium


The UCI School of Medicine 2022 Neuromuscular Colloquium provides an academic forum for regional and national physicians who specialize entirely or to a significant degree in neuromuscular medicine.

This colloquium is designed to encourage an atmosphere of collaboration and interaction between the various neuromuscular specialists in the US, Canada and internationally. It is a forum to discuss the latest topics and advances in neuromuscular medicine and review interesting and challenging cases, with several live patient presentations. Such activities are aimed to improve patient care by promoting closer research collaboration and the development of new research projects between the various groups and institutions.
