All clinicians employed by the Department of Veterans Affairs who serve veterans with Parkinson's disease and related disorders (regardless of capacity) are invited and encouraged to register as a member of the National VA Parkinson’s Disease Consortium. Membership is free and grants access to a variety of Parkinson’s disease resources. General membership does not require participation as a Consortium Center. You can register today by completing and forwarding the application below.
Consortium Center Designation
Consortium Center designations are dependent on several factors, the most important being the interest and availability of the Consortium member. Other factors of consideration include the extent of movement disorder experience and current practice, support from the local VA administration, and the geographic needs of the Consortium Network. Interested members are encouraged to contact the Consortium Coordinating Center to discuss this opportunity. Additionally, the Consortium Executive Committee will independently extend invitations based on the needs of the Consortium Network.
Applications should be printed then faxed or mailed to:
