About Clinical Neurology at University of Sheffield

Lead academic: Dr Jon Wood and Dr Esther Hobson

This course offers practical clinical exposure and gives you the chance to apply the fundamentals of neuroanatomy and physiology to better understand the clinical features of patients with neurological diseases. You'll learn how insights from the laboratory are translated into benefits for patients.

With an ageing population, neurological diseases represent an increasing economic burden to society and a cause of much suffering to patients and carers alike. You'll focus on how insights from the laboratory are translated into benefits for patients.

The course offers theoretical and practical training in clinical neurology and neuroscience research including practical experience in the dissection room to facilitate teaching of neuro-anatomy. During several themed modules, each focussing on a different patho-physiological branch of neurological disease, disease-centred lectures and small group tutorials provide the necessary theoretical knowledge into the current state of the art of diagnostics and therapeutics in neurology.

In small-group teaching sessions and clinics, you'll have the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to patients with neurological disease. In the final term you may take a research option (Route A) or a Clinical Neurology Experiential Learning Module (Route B).

Students opting for Route A will choose from a range of clinical research projects based at SITraN or within the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. Students opting for Route B will attend additional specialist clinics with patient-centred teaching from experts in the field who will emphasise recent advances in clinical practice.

This course will benefit those wishing to develop a career within the expanding field of translational neuroscience. Additionally, the course is aimed at medical graduates with an MBChB or equivalent qualification, who wish to develop a sub-specialty experience in a branch of neurology.

We accept medical students who wish to intercalate their studies. Find out more on the Medical School's website.
