For me the Parkinson’s Disease Summer School was a challenging week, during which I was able to expand my knowledge about Parkinson’s Disease (PD) from a lot of different views (medical, physiotherapeutical, psychological etc.) and to integrate all this information in a more complete view of PD than I could have developed during my regular study. Beside this knowledge bomb, PDSS is a great opportunity to improve your English skills, presentation skills and you get to know students from all over the world 🙂 So, take a deep breath and accept this challenge. I’m sure you won’t regret!

For me the fourth Parkinson’s Disease Summer School was an eye-opening experience. I had the chance to improve very rapidly several important skills that usually take time and certain contexts to develop. The visible benefits are not only on a professional level but also personal because PDSS gathers so many great people from all over the world. I’m glad I decided to participate and hope that many other young researchers will have the chance to be part of this ambitious project.
