We are really keen to encourage all medical students and junior doctors to consider training in paediatric neurology. Trainees tell us it is a warm, welcoming, rewarding and fascinating specialty, working in friendly and approachable teams!  We have been developing lots of resources to encourage you to explore a career in paediatric neurology. Please get in touch, ask questions, come to our events even if you are just starting to consider paediatric neurology as a possible career option.
