Parkinson's School

The complete 24 course set, all in one package!

Parkinson's School is a resource for patients, their family members, and the community that serves them. Clinic visits are too few and far between and patients have questions that are going unanswered.

Over the past 20 years, Dr. Mischley has treated over 4000 patients with Parkinsonism and these courses represent the most frequently asked questions. There are 24 pre-recorded classes and corresponding discussions. You may watch the classes at your own pace and in any order. You will continue to have unlimited access to the videos and may watch them as often as you'd like.

On the 14th & 28th of every month at 12 pm PST, there is a live 60-90 minute live discussion for enrolled students. The 2023 meeting registration link can be found at the end of each lesson.

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
The course was released January 1, 2020. There are 24 modules, which were released every two weeks in 2020. There is not currently any new content being released, but you do have lifetime access to the published modules.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. The videos never go away, and you can watch and re-watch as many times as you'd like.
What and when are the live discussions?
For 2023, we will still be hosting virtual, live discussions on the 14th and 28th of every month. However, there will be some changes! On the 14th of every month, we will be doing a Speaker Series, which will involve a special guest speaker who leads the discussion and shares input on all things PD-related. The 28th will follow suit from the past two years with Dr. Mischley hosting and sharing her input and thoughts. Only those who are enrolled in the entire course bundle are invited to join these courses. ** Please note that the 2021 live discussions were recorded and are posted at the end of each corresponding course. We did NOT record all of the 2022 live discussions, but the ones that were, are posted under the same corresponding course.
