With its concentration of clinical and applied scientific activity the Institute is a unique national resource for postgraduate training and research in neurology, its associated disciplines and the basic neurosciences.The Education Unit does not arrange work experience or internship opportunities at the UCL Institute of Neurology or the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. Any person interested in arranging a work experience/internship will need to contact a researcher at the UCL Institute of Neurology and obtain their agreement for a placement to commence. It is not possible to accept people under the age of 18 for work experience/internships. Final year medical students need to apply to the Elective programme to arrange a placement at the Institute of Neurology.
