This course is designed specifically for health professionals interested in working with patients suffering from strokes, head injuries or other neurological conditions. This course has been developed with experienced clinicians, academics and world-leading researches to give you the best possible specialist grounding in this field. It has a broad multi-disciplinary approach to ensure that what you learn is most relevant to your own practice and career. About a third of people who have had a stroke are left with disabilities.
As a specialist you will be playing a key role in a team helping patients cope with both the short and long term effects of their illness. Your aim is to work towards getting them back to the best possible level of normal independent living. The facilities we offer are second-to-none and include our superb, new purpose-built StaRLab, which boasts the latest high-tech movement capture and TMS equipment. We teach in small groups, which encourages a close-knit student body and a supportive learning culture. Interprofessional learning is also key to our approach, where you will regularly meet with students from other courses to share ideas and information.
