About MS courses


MS Academy operates on a tiered system with each level suited to a different professional ability. Level 1 'Basecamp' is aimed at junior doctors at C1, C2 and neurology registrars at ST3, whilst 'Foundation' (level 2 and 3) is best for neurology registrars at ST4 or 5, as well as trainee GPs, band 6 support or community nurses and band 6 therapists. Each level increases in specialism peaking at level 6 'Cutting Edge', new in 2021, providing the latest in practice-applicable research in a conference format for expert MS specialists.
