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.

In response to this, we are providing innovative, supportive MasterClass training to enhance trainee’s skills in multiple sclerosis (MS).
This interactive programme, led by national and international experts in MS aims to train a new generation of ‘MSologists’ and will provide graduated training, starting with Basecamp.
Basecamp, through lectures and interactive discussions will help you to develop your skills, Basecamp attendees will also be partnered with a mentor who will offer ongoing support.
The MS Academy Basecamp is the newest of our educational offerings and has been developed to educate trainees earlier in their careers, to cultivate an interest in MS. We hope by exposing trainees to modern MS management earlier, more trainees will be motivated to specialise in MS. Currently the curriculum provides only minimal information on the management of MS; however, by providing a dedicated training and support programme early, we are sure we will be able to generate an increased number of neurologists who want to specialise in MS.

MS Academy was established six years ago and in that time has accomplished a huge amount. The six different levels of specialist MS training are dedicated to case-based learning and practical application of cutting edge research. Home to national programme Raising the Bar and the fantastic workstream content it is producing, this is an exciting Academy to belong to.
