Contacts for career advice in the specialty

There are two main types of career in clinical neurophysiology, one via a medical route and one via a scientific route. For doctors contemplating a career in the discipline the Royal College of Physicians summary page on training may be useful, also the syllabus for medical trainees in clinical neurophysiology and entry requirements

Career advice in Clinical Neurophysiology podcast is here.

Doctors who would like information about training in Clinical Neurophysiology can also seek advice from the following BSCN members (list to be updated shortly as several of these have now retired)
