Hi,

As some of you may know, at Newcastle medical school, there are SSCs in fourth year. These allow us to pick what areas of medicine we would like to do for 6 weeks, doing an audit in the first, presentation in the second and eportfolio in the last.

My question is, I want to do a Neurology placement, and as we can do this outside the university hospitals, I was wondering which places in the UK are the best for neurology? Also, I would be really thankful if anyone had any contacts for a supervisor in this SSC.

Thank you!

Rikki

National hospital for neurology and neurosurgery and Walton centre seem to rank highly (according to a friend who is neuro inclined). Newcastle also seems to have a good reputation, particularly with regards to research with its association with ION.

There's a neurology SSC on the system for all three periods down in Tees and I always thought it sounded really good. They've also started bribing people to come to Tees with a massive bursary. Might be worth looking at... http://ssc.ncl.ac.uk/ssc-booking/view/20152016/5610

(Out of region SSCs can be really really expensive++++ in terms of accommodation, but the uni does pay for 1 return trip)

I know how unpopular Tees base unit was when I was in 3rd/4th/5th year (am a 2013 graduate), but I work down there now and I would definitely recommend it!

I assume the Neurology SSC is in the JCUH?

Think the JR in Oxford is strong on Neuro if you can go anywhere in the UK

Queen's Square in London. You'll see all sorts of super interesting things and everybody I know that spent time there said it was awesome.
