UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology


Clone of Clinical Divisions

In addition to belonging to a Research Department, the academic staff also belong to one of six different Divisions: these have been established to ensure that professional affiliations are well represented and to provide a forum for those with similar specialist training.

Clinical Neurology

The Division of Clinical Neurology exists to bring together all Professors, Readers, Senior Lecturers and Honorary Senior Lecturers working at the Institute of Neurology. Many of the Honorary Senior Lecturers are full time NHS Consultants working at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery which is a leading centre for the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with a wide range of neurological conditions. Many members of the division also belong to research departments with a specific focus, however the Division of Clinical Neurology allows them to come together to discuss matters of common interest.
