Centre for Clinical Brain Sciences

Edinburgh Clinical Neurology course

A well-established annual 2-day course with a practical emphasis, for anyone with an interest in neurology.

This annual course has now been running in Edinburgh for 39 years.

The two-day programme has a practical approach that will appeal to everyone with a passing interest in neurology, whether trainees, young(ish) consultants or seasoned veterans. This "no nonsense" approach, instilled by its founder Charles Warlow, is the central attraction of the course, together with its own unique brand of informality and Scottish conviviality.

Come see the Athens of the North, and hone your neurological craft.

The programme

The course covers a wide variety of topics from Edinburgh and UK-wide expert speakers. There is discussion of difficult cases, a clinicopathological conference and investigations for neurologists.

The course fee and catering for both days is £250/Monday £130/Tuesday £120, accommodation (2 nights B&B) £130, course dinner £45.
