Training Days

How will Training Days be Organised?
Calman Teaching days take place on the second Friday of each month and all the Specialist Trainees from the region are expected to attend. These are held at each of the four neurology centres throughout the year.

Lecture notes from the Calman day are uploaded regularly on the West midlands Google calendar to which all trainees have access.
