This event was due to take place on Thursday 23 April 2020 and has been postponed to Tuesday 22 September 2020. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

This event will highlight the lack of good clinical neurology and neurosurgery facilities in areas of Africa and Asia. Experienced speakers in this field will address how these issues can be remedied by developing educational facilities locally and with international collaboration. Speakers will also address methods of developing research projects in these areas of the world. 

This is a unique topic that has not been covered before at the RSM or in the neurological community in the UK. 

Topics include: 

  • Recognising the requirements in resource poor settings
  • How to develop research methods and overcoming obstacles 
  • What are the benefits of educational facilities locally and globally
