Neurology 2015: leading edge neurology for the practising clinician - 25-27 March 2015
is a pleasure to announce this 2nd Annual course, a highlight
of the British Neurology calendar. The course is for consultants and
senior trainees in neurology and other neuroscience specialities, and
aims to provide a comprehensive update on the practical hospital
management of neurological diseases. The half day event on Wednesday
25th March 2015 is open to Clinical Trainees and Research Fellows in
Neurology and associated specialities. It is a precursor to the full
course, taking place on Thursday 26th and Friday 27th March 2015.
The emphasis of the course is on modern techniques and therapies in a clinical setting, and the clinical practice of neurology. The course is taught via lectures, video sessions, CPC and a 'Town Hall' session, and intends to be didactic but also entertaining and informative.
