Cases will then be reviewed with the faculty with emphasis on key learning points using “bite-sized” interactive presentations. There is no didactic lecture-based teaching. Sessions are interactive with the opportunity to ask questions.
I would like to thank the faculty for putting together this excellent practical hands-on Neuro training course packed with stimulating cases covering a broad range of pathology, that has proved extremely useful in my general radiology practice.
Giving every attendee a workstation is innovative and is the closest I’ve seen to recreating the reporting experience. All courses should be taught this way.
I am an experienced Consultant radiologist and clinical manager. I attended the Neuroradiology Workshop to update and refresh my skills. The course was exceptional, for its attention to practical neuroradiology situations. It also stands out as a workstation based interactive exercise rather than a lecture programme. Highest recommendation.
