During her neurology residency in Bucharest Romania (where she was born), her interest in MRI was sparkled by the ISMRM MRI Summer School. Afterwards she spent one year at the MS Center Amsterdam, starting her work on brain atrophy in Multiple Sclerosis. After the residency and one year at the Lille University Hospital, Veronica returned to Amsterdam for a PhD in MRI in Multiple Sclerosis with Prof. Frederik Barkhof, combining MRI with pathological and clinical data, including several MAGNIMS projects. Since 2014 she is working in Belgium, first as a Medical Expert for medical software and since 2015 as a neurologist specialized in Multiple Sclerosis at the Rehabilitation and MS Center in Pelt and Hasselt University. In 2017 Veronica got the Erasmus Course on Magnetic Resonance Imaging Neuro Diploma, and since 2016 she is also specialized in Palliative and End Of Life Care.
Minimum two MS experts collaborate to produce an educational slide deck. These slide decks are presented (live) to ParadigMS members, peer reviewed and updated.
The slide decks are published on the ParadigMS website “on behalf of ParadigMS”.
Based on the slide decks, publications are produced. These publications are peer reviewed and published as consensus publications.
Regional (fe: Scandinavian countries, Benelux, …) or national events where state-of-the-art science is transferred to general neurologists and other care givers (nurses, etc) that are confronted with MS in their day to day practice.
Webinars can complement the educational events.
The educational slide decks, events and webinars can be important building blocks of accredited educational programs.
