The Chapter of Movement Disorders was formed in May 2010 during the Malaysian Society Neuroscience Annual Meeting in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. The inaugural meeting was held in Le Meridien Hotel Kota Kinabalu to elect a protem committee to steer the formation of the chapter. The protem committee consisted of Prof. Dr. Norlinah Ibrahim (PPUKM – President), Prof. Lim Shen Yang (UMMC – Secretary), Dr. Shanthi Viswanathan (HKL – Treasurer), Dr. Santhi Datuk Puvanarajah (HKL – Member), Dr. Lee Moon Keen (Pantai Medical Centre – Member) and Dr. Chris Chong Kang Tird (Sabah Medical Centre – Member).
The chapter aims to promote movement disorders in Malaysia. The chapter has been active since its formation and many activities have been organized. MDC has been organizing the Movement Disorders Teaching Course every two years with the first successful event organized on 28 and 29 September 2012 in UKM Medical Center. MDC has been an official Affiliate Member of the International Parkinson’s & Movement Disorders Society (MDS) since February 2012.
