What will the course involve?
The course will advance understanding of Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders through taught sessions and mentorship (a mentor will be appointed for each participant where applicable).
How is the course taught?
The course is taught through a range of learner-centred methods including formal lectures, interactive workshops, and projects. Additional seminars and learning opportunities will be undertaken more locally with your mentor and through distance learning.
Learners must complete a workplace service place audit during the six month break, before returning to Module 2 to present their findings. Audits are presented to peers in small groups with a faculty member, where each audit is discussed and critiqued and learners take part in voting for the best audit.

In-person and virtual attendance
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, restrictions will still be in place at the time of the MasterClass. Therefore, we will be limited to the number of people allowed in the room. With this in mind, we will be offering delegates the option of attending the MasterClass virtually. However, should you want to attend the MasterClass in person and have the chance to connect with the MasterClass speakers and network with your fellow delegates, please be assured that we will be following all the government safety advice at the time of the meeting with extra safety precautions of our own.
What will it cost?
The course will cost £850 (incl. VAT), which includes all meeting materials and an evening dinner for both modules. There is a reduced fee of £700 (incl. VAT) for delegates that attend the MasterClass virtually. Delegates are responsible for their own accommodation and travel costs. → Terms & conditions
