Taster sessions for Junior Doctors (F1-2 & ST1-3)

We encourage all junior doctors who have an interest in Paediatric Neurology to come and spend some time with a Paediatric Neurology team and attend consultations and/or ward rounds. The best way to arrange this is to speak to your supervisor to approve ‘taster sessions’ and contact your local centre lead to make your arrangements. Centre Leads can be found through the BPNA website with this link here.
