What Residents Know About MS

 – June 3, 2015  –– 

Are neurology residents getting it right when it comes to diagnosing multiple sclerosis (MS)? A new study suggests that the diagnostic accuracy for MS among first-year neurology residents falls short of that for stroke and seizures. "This gives us a good benchmark of how our residents do and what they know at the beginning of their training," said Stephen Krieger, MD, director of the residency program and associate professor, neurology, The Mount Sinai Hospital, New York. He presented his research at a poster session during the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) 2015 Annual Meeting.
