West of England Seminars in Advanced Neurology (WESAN) 2019

21 - 22 November - Mecure Rougement Hotel, Exeter

The West of England Seminars in Advanced Neurology is a longstanding educational course which takes place annually in Exeter. The course features invited speakers who discuss relevant and practical neurological topics over 2 days, and it is credited with 12 Royal College of Physicians CPD points. It is targeted at neurology trainees and specialists, but anyone with an interest in neurology will find the course enthralling. It is a very interactive collegiate course and discussions are very much encouraged.
