The Course:

The course is aimed primarily at consultant general radiologists who require further proficiency in neuroradiology. The course will also be suitable for specialist registrars in radiology and those with a particular interest in neuroradiology. 

The course consists of lectures on different topics that complement each other over a two-year cycle (see programme, below).

Interactive sessions will supplement the lecture topics on both cycles of the course. A book stand will be available for the sale of medical books. 

The course begins on Wednesday lunchtime and finishes on Friday lunchtime thereby allowing time for travel to and from Sheffield. 

Our venue is the Mercure St Paul’s Hotel which is in the centre of Sheffield adjacent to the award winning Winter Gardens and Millennium Galleries. This hotel offers first class conference facilities and accommodation together with excellent leisure facilities. 

The hotel is only a short walk away from the railway station. The Residential Rate (£750) includes accommodation for Wednesday and Thursday. The Residential Rate includes accommodation for Wednesday and Thursday as well as the evening meal on Wednesday and the course dinner on Thursday. The Non-Residential Rate (£500)  includes the course dinner on Thursday evening. Lunch (Wednesday and Thursday) and refreshments (all days) are provided for all delegates. Delegates are therefore advised to arrive early on Wednesday in time for lunch (from 11.45am).

This course provides 15 CPD credits in accordance with the CPD Scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists.
