APProviders™ Consortium & Pre-Congress

For Advanced Practice Providers

When was the last time advanced practice providers in movement and related disorders got to gather with colleagues from all over, sparking ideas, sharing resources, and making vital connections? 
On the day prior to the ATMRD Congress, PMD Alliance will host an APProviders™ Conference, a conference unlike any other, exclusively for APPs by APPs in movement and related disorders. During that day and throughout the ATMRD Congress, APPs will have an opportunity to network and engage with peers from across the country. The full weekend will leave participants energized, inspired, and well connected!

Fernando Pagan Movement Disorder Specialist

"We are fortunate to have Congresses that focus on phenomenology and pathophysiology. This Congress is entirely different and is geared for all level learners, new and seasoned. This Congress is focused on therapeutics. We will be looking at clinical research data, clinical practice experience and therapeutics to understand implications in everyday practice."

Yasar Torres-Yaghi Movement Disorder Specialist

"One of the greatest pain points for physicians is dealing with insurance barriers. We are excited to have the first health care provider Congress with a Resource Lounge staffed with master level social workers, experienced medical assistants, and medication assistance fund experts to assist in navigating this process to improve provider and patient experience."

Sherrie Gould Nurse Practitioner

"Never has this occurred! A specific, full-day conference: organized by APPs, delivered by APPs, attended by APPs. To educate and acquire. To connect and collaborate. To inspire and develop a resource network across the country."


    Frequently Asked Questions


    • You will receive an email follow-up addressing your specific selections, including the hands-on course(s).

    • Yes, you will receive an email confirming your specific selections, including hands-on selection(s).

    • There will be a waiting list if registration capacity is reached. If you have selected enrollment in the hands-on course(s) and change your mind, please notify PMD Alliance.

    • With the change in ownership from Mandarin Oriental to Salamander DC, we are hoping they will extend the same discounted rate for three (3) “shoulder days” on either side of the conference/congress. An email or a phone call to let us know the dates you are requesting will combine your stay into one contiguous reservation. You may also reserve those dates independently with the Salamander DC if you wish, and you can receive the reduced rate by letting them know your stay is part of the PMD Alliance ATMRD event. The fees associated with those additional days are the responsibility of the attendee and will be charged to your personal credit card when you check out of the hotel.

    • Credit/contact hours can be claimed through our partner organization, Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM). At the conclusion of the ATMRD Congress, you will be provided a link to to complete an evaluation, claim your credits/contact hours, and print certificates. 


    • Total available credit/contact hours will be determined in conjunction with our partner organization, the PIM. We project that up to 15 credit/contact hours may be available.

    • Scholarships are available for fellows, APPS, and residents. Go to: to apply, please indicate your registration type as “Scholarship Applicant.” You will receive an email or phone call to discuss specific needs and available funding. If you have questions, email [email protected]

    • We will not be offering a virtual/streaming option for the ATMRD Congress or APProviders™ Conference. The ATMRD course directors, Dr. Pagan and Dr. Torres-Yaghi, want to prioritize gathering in-person again, especially after so long apart. They believe people engage better with the material and with each other in-person. Their courses have a focus on learning through discussion, questioning, and hands-on experience. This is a format difficult to replicate via streamed courses. 

      We do have a growing catalog of virtual CME courses, including an ATMRD preview course:

    • We will be following local requirements that are in place at the time of the conference/congress.

    • You are welcome to bring your family. Additional hotel costs incurred are the responsibility of the attendee. The rooms at the Mandarin Oriental, D.C. are the same price for single or double occupancy. For additional guests in the same room, there will be a reduced rate of $30/night charge applied to your incidental room charges and will be reflected on your invoice at checkout. Rollaway beds are available for $30/night as needed and available. Please provide names of all guests that will be staying in your room to PMD Alliance.

    • The packages are significantly reduced and an additional reduction for sharing a room is not offered. Each attendee should register individually. Please inquire about available scholarships if necessary.

    • Early Bird Pricing is valid through March 31, 2022 This reflects a savings of $541 for the 4-night package and $437 for the 3-night package. Reservations made after April 1st will be $1,666 for the 4-night package and $1,337 for the 3-night package. This is still a significant discount from “market value” of both the registration and the hotel stay, but we would encourage you to register for the early bird pricing to take advantage of the greatest value.

    • Valet-only parking is available at the Mandarin Oriental, D.C. at a cost of $59/day for overnight guests.

    • If your employer/institution requires a cost breakdown separating hotel cost from conference cost, please let us know and we can provide that information for you as needed.
