The Neurology Academy
Expert training in neurology
Neurology Academy is an innovative education provider for clinicians, specialist nurses and professions allied to medicine. The training programme focuses on both disease management and service transformation. Each priority condition is led by an Academic Faculty of practicing clinicians who operate within a separate disease focussed Academy.

Course attendees improve their own understanding in management of the condition as well as working towards improvements in their own local services through audit, data, education and networking.
Current Academy priorities are:
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Dementia and Alzheimer's disease
- Palliative care
- Headache disorders
- Motor neurone disease (MND)
- Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)
Each MasterClass to date has recruited a maximum of 20-30 participants to enable intensive training and support for each participant. Graduates form an alumni who receive further updates and support to help service change. The educational style of the Neurology Academy has been commended by the Department of Health in England and by Parkinson’s UK for providing unique clinical skills enhancement and promoting service development.
We work with primary and secondary care NHS organisations at all levels, local authorities, charities, and both NHS and independent providers and we are in partnership with industry to support some elements of course delivery.
Health and social care services in the UK are constantly changing and the Academy keeps pace with the changes by working at all levels: NHS hospital trusts, CCG’s, Local Authority, Independent providers, charities and the voluntary sector. Partnerships with life science organisations and charities support some element of course delivery.
98% of course members have undertaken and competed the inter-module service audit required within the course programme. 75% of these graduates have gone on to develop specialised services of their own.
You can find examples of these projects and audits on our website here:
Our academic faculty and speakers are nationally and internationally recognised for their specific expertise providing delegates with training to their individual educational needs.
Our comprehensive pre-course assessment provides a detailed analysis of the delegates’ training and skills as well as identifying their personal learning objectives for the course, so the MasterClass can be truly tailored to their needs. The MasterClass programme is not a standard course; it meets the individual educational needs of each group.
