This event has now taken place – thank you to all participants who entered into the spirit of the EPNS Masterclass and made it such an inspiring success.

The EPNS Cambridge Masterclass has established itself as something special…Forty trainees and mentors in beautiful surroundings, grappling with some of the challenges of child neurology in the 21st Century. Past topics have included functional symptoms, medical futility, and allocation of scarce financial resources in an era of increasing medical possibility.

A rare treat. I really appreciated the quality of the talks and the interaction between participants” (2018 delegate feedback)

 4th EPNS Masterclass: Corpus Christi College Cambridge, UK 

15-17 September 2022  (Thursday morning until Saturday lunchtime)

 Topic: Inflamed minds, inflamed people









Masterclass Location:  Corpus Christi, Cambridge, United Kingdom.

Accommodation:  Corpus Christi and St Catharine’s College en-suite single rooms. (Please note: these are student rooms and can be quite basic). You can register with accommodation or, for a reduced fee, without accommodation.

Programme: CLICK HERE

Number of participants: We are limiting numbers to 34 participants to preserve the interactive nature of the meeting.

Who can participate? Building on the unique features of our first three Masterclasses, this is a small, interactive meeting with – where possible – delegates attending in “couples” of a senior mentoring clinician and the leaders of tomorrow: to share and learn from each other in areas where often there are no easy answers. We encourage participants to register as a pair and complete the ‘mentor/mentee couple registration form’, however senior mentors and leaders of tomorrow are most welcome to attend without a partner, by completing the ‘single person registration form’ below for completion. Note: participants registering as a pair do not necessarily have to work at the same hospital but must have a mentor/mentee connection. We suggest the junior partner should be under 45, with a clinical practice in paediatric neurology and active in research and teaching.
