Why Stroke Medicine?
Stroke is a rapidly growing field of medicine and a truly multidisciplinary specialty. It is ideal for anyone who enjoys team work, inter professional learning and challenging clinical cases. There are new treatments being developed, for example endovascular treatment which provides a promising adjunct to thrombolysis. Stroke research is driving change and producing relevant treatments which are improving patient care.
