Details

Coronavirus/COVID-19 - We are unable to run the course this year as too many of the faculty are unavailable and we consider that concentrating medical staff from several countries in one place carries a higher than average chance of spreading the virus to critically important individuals. We will be re-arranging the course for 2021. We are refunding all course fees paid by delegates to date. Most of these will take the form of a PayPal refund direct to the credit card used for payment and the first batch have been processed today (23rd March). A few UK trainees overpaid originally and may already have been given a partial refund by the treasurer - any such refunds will need to be repaid to the society please. The second batch of refunds have now been done (1st April). A few people who registered in September have passed the deadline for PayPal reimbursement and will be contacted directly by the treasurer. If you think you should have had a refund and have not then please contact us.

The latest UK Government advice on the situation can be found HERE and the list of high risk areas is HERE.

The triennial teaching course covers a variety of topics. This year's topics include Evoked Potentials (including visual physiology), Neurophysiology in Critical Care, Advanced EMG, Neurophysiology in Epilepsy, Ultrasound of Periperal nerves  and Intraoperative Monitoring. (Flyer)

Confirmed speakers include Dr David MacDonald (Saudi Arabia), Dr Aileen McGonigal (France), Dr Matthew Pitt (UK), Dr Peter Kaplan (USA), Dr Leo Visser (Netherlands), Dr Stephan Ruegg (Switzerland), Prof Graham Holder (Singapore), Prof Machiel Zwarts (Netherlands) and Dr Sanjeev Nandedkar (USA)
