Museum of Science and Industry, Central Manchester

The Peripheral Neuropathy Teaching Day is aimed at trainees in Neurology and Neurophysiology but is suitable for all who wish for an update in the assessment and management of common and rare neuropathies. The course is delivered by UK experts in the field.

This year’s teaching day will include the traditional lecture format in the am. This will be both F2F and virtual. The afternoon is small group teaching on 3 different topics (chronic inflammatory neuropathy, inherited neuropathies and acute inflammatory neuropathy). This will allow a more interactive and educational session. This will be F2F only.

This event will allow trainees the chance to network with UK experts in neuropathy, a small social event will be announced at a later date

We encourage attendees to consider registering for our BPNS Spring meeting which occurs at the same venue on the following day.
