I recommend this course to newly grades and specialists as a flashback; also, for your presentation, a massive amount of info, stats and research!

This was a fantastic Neuro course. I have been out of work since starting a family and found this course really gave me the confidence to start re-applying for jobs in Neuro.

I am a second-year physio student and I have developed an interest to further my studies into specialising in neurological rehabilitation. This course has for sure added more knowledge to the education received at school, which is what I hoped for. I feel like I will be better prepared for when the time comes to dive into a masters program regarding neurological rehab.

My biggest win from the Introduction to Neurology course was understanding how the specific techniques addressed to brain (SNS) injuries or periphery can help patients in my clinical practice. Thank you!
It is a perfect balance of anatomy, pathologies, EBP, guidelines, current research and the importance of physio. I highly recommend this course.

I am glad to have participated in this online course, where I had the opportunity to supplement my previous knowledge with a lot of new information and expand my theoretical knowledge about neurophysiotherapy. The knowledge I gained in this course will significantly help and facilitate my work with neurological patients!
