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
