Leadership style

Dr. Udow believes that a good leader must lead by example, must inspire those he or she works with through excitement and humour, and must encourage others to take ownership of the team's work by listening to all members of the team.

Teaching philosophy

Neurology is fun. The practice of medicine is a practice. Being a physician is a privilege.
These are the three core beliefs of Dr. Udow's teaching philosophy.

When engaging learners, especially in the clinical setting, Dr. Udow always seeks to point out an interesting finding or clinical learning point.

Sometimes the right answer is not apparent immediately, and it is the work of the neurologist to dig deeper in to a patient's story. Uncertainty is acceptable if you can learn from it.

A doctor can only doctor if there are patients in need, and in neurology the need of patients is complex. Symptom management, diagnosis and disease modification are important, but a physician must work to earn trust and facilitate the patient and their family's understanding of disease.


Dr. Udow is the program director for the Neurology Residency Program at the University of Manitoba, the course director for the Pre-Clerkship Neurosciences Course with UGME and Medical Co-Director of the Movement Disorders Clinic. 

Dr. Udow has an interest in medical education and is exploring research opportunities in this area.

In the clinical setting, Dr. Udow practices primarily as a movement disorders neurologist, with a special interest in Parkinson disease non-motor symptoms and cognitive disorders associated with atypical parkinsonian syndromes.

Dr. Udow practices outpatient general neurology one half-day per week and attends on the general neurology teaching service at the Health Sciences Centre.
