Career Advice and Mentorship Program for Fellows & interested REsidents

Introducing CAMP-FiRE

PMD Alliance is committed to fostering successful and gratifying careers in Movement Disorders. That’s why we’re delighted to offer a new, year-long mentorship program to ensure the next generation of movement disorder clinicians are equipped to meet the demands of the 21st century.

As many as 1.2 million Americans live with Parkinson’s today, with about 90,000 people in the U.S. diagnosed annually, a 50% increase from previous 2012 data. Only 9% of people with Parkinson’s disease receive care from movement disorders specialists. Truthfully speaking—there aren’t enough movement disorder specialists, leaving many people under-supported.



  • Foster the breadth & depth of potential career paths in Movement Disorders​
  • Offer a year-long mentorship matched to individual’s career aspirations & interests​
  • Empower the development of skillsets leading to both professional success and personal gratification.

Some key aspects of CAMP-FiRE


  • Mentees be surveyed for their special areas of career interest and connected with an experienced Movement Disorder Specialist mentor outside of your training institution who has expertise in these areas.
  • The program will start at the end of June 2024 in conjunction with the ATMRD Congress and wrap-up in May 2025.
  • 1:1 private mentoring sessions that will consist of virtual meetings or calls over the course of 12 months.
  • PMD Alliance will host virtual sessions for all mentees so they can share their experiences and successes in the CAMP-FiRE program.

The program is led by Jean Hubble, M.D.​​ with coordination and support provided by PMD Alliance. During our pilot phase, mentees will be limited to 2024 ATMRD scholarship recipients with the goal to expand in the future.
