The Institute of Neurology offers a limited number of undergraduate Elective placements, to final year medical students from the UK and abroad, which are booking at least 18 months in advance. These placements are not strictly structured - it is advisable to be as pro-active as possible. It is up to the individual student to choose the activities they wish to attend, within their assigned clinical group/formal teaching programme, which would most benefit them during their placement.

Most clinicians see people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), but many are not specialists in MS or neurology and, with increasing diagnostic dilemmas and treatment options, MS management can be daunting for the non-specialist.
With this in mind, this course will cover key clinical issues in the diagnosis and treatment of MS, serving as a timely update on this rapidly advancing field. It has been designed to be accessible to clinicians who are not neurologists (but should still be of interest to neurologists) or specialists in MS. The lecturers have all been chosen for their expertise and relevant experience in practice and research.
