MasterClasses and Events

Join a national network of healthcare professionals dedicated to specialist skill development and transformational service change.

Neurology Academy is an innovative educational provider for healthcare professionals including consultants, specialist nurses, pharmacists, therapists and other allied health professionals. Our courses are developed by practicing specialists who combine their experience and expertise into case-based learning designed to create specialists in their field with confidence in effecting change.

From course to community

The collegiate atmosphere found through our MasterClasses has meant that our Academies have been likened to professional families. Peer support and mentorship create networks of healthcare practitioners who share a passion for their specialism, a heart for their patients and a vision for optimal service delivery. HOW OUR COURSES WORK

Designed by clinicians, for clinicians

Healthcare professionals have come together from across different backgrounds, localities, experiences and service models to develop our courses. They make up our valued Faculty, and are constantly shaping and updating the content and style of delivery to maximise its relevance and practicality. MORE ABOUT US

'The things you can't get from books'

A phrase coined by Academic Director of Parkinson's Academy and co-founder of Neurology Academy Peter Fletcher, this epitomises what makes us different to other educational providers. Our mix of practical, peer-to-peer learning takes delegates from evidence-based information to transformational action that cannot be found in a textbook. EXPLORE ALL COURSES AND EVENTS

Transferable model of learning

Whilst each courses' content is entirely unique and shaped by that specialism, the course format and learning style used create an entirely transferable model which can be replicated for any disease area. MORE ABOUT HOW OUR COURSES WORK
