As part of Brain Infections Global (An NIHR Global Health Research Group on Improving the Management of Acute Brain Infections) we have been establishing the highly successful NeuroID Course internationally.
Neurological Infectious Diseases Course will take place in Blantyre, Malawi on 13th/14th January 2020.
The University of Liverpool’s NeuroID course will take place outside of the UK for just the second time following the successful staging of the 2-day course in India in July. This next international edition will be held at the Malawi-Liverpool Wellcome Trust in Blantyre, Malawi on 13th & 14th January 2020. We are excited to announce that Prof Mac Mallewa and Dr Emmie Mbale of the Malawi College of Medicine will co-host the event with Prof Tom Solomon and Dr Jen Cornick of The University of Liverpool. It will feature case presentations and talks by international experts from across the Brain Infections Global network including Prof Priscilla Rupali of the Christian Medicine College, India; Prof V Ravi of NIMHANS, India; Dr Lucia Brito from Brazil; and Dr Christopher Parry and Dr Benedict Michael from the UK.
The Neurological Infectious Diseases Course is an internationally renowned 2-day CPD course aimed at clinicians of all grades (including medical students) working in Adult and Paediatric Neurology, Infectious Diseases, Acute Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Medical Microbiology who want to update their knowledge and improve their skills. The course aims to cover all the common and important neurological infections, as well some rarer conditions, with the emphasis very much on practical approaches to the problems encountered on wards and in outpatients clinics. We will have bedside and laboratory sessions again, following positive feedback from India.

Over 100 budding specialists in Neurological Infectious Diseases attended the course, which included common and important neurological infections encountered in India, as well some rarer conditions, with, for the first time, bedside and laboratory sessions. There was also the opportunity to find out about some of the latest brain infections research taking place in different countries.
