Survey: Understanding views of neurology trainees in the UK about MS as an area of sub-specialty interest

16 Apr 2020

Do you want to develop specialist skills in multiple sclerosis? Research undertaken by Dr Riffat Tanveer has shown trainee neurologists largely feel unsupported in developing skills in this specialist area. Complete our short survey to help us understand your views as a neurology trainee about pursuing a neurology sub-speciality.

Dear Colleague,

I am conducting this short survey among neurology trainees in the UK to understand their views about MS as a sub-speciality interest.

The care of patients with MS has evolved significantly in the recent years. As the burden of MS in society has increased, so has our ability to make an early diagnosis, treatment to modify disease course and patient outcome. This also means we need adequate resources to run effective MS service.

I am interested to know what made you choose a sub-speciality (if you have done so already), what are the barriers trainees perceive when choosing MS as an area of sub-speciality interest and what can be done to improve your training experience in MS.

Your participation is much appreciated.

Kind regards
Dr Riffat Tanveer
