The meetings to date have all been approved by the Royal College of Physicians for up to 6 CPD credits.NEXT MEETING : IMPERIAL- 21 April 2023
A key aspect of the SENA meetings is that they are free to attend.
In order to achieve this goal, we seek funding of the SENA meetings through educational grants and sponsorship off the pharmaceutical and devices industry as well as generous support by the hosting centres.
From time to time, there will be up to two bursaries of fixed value available each year.
The Council of SENA invites applications for bursaries towards the cost of attending national or international meetings for education and research purposes. An eligible applicant is a member of SENA in a training grade and consultants within five years of appointment to the consultant level.
SENA is planning to advertise for small bursaries for neurology consultants and registrars in 2021 once we have refined our new criteria and "bursary window".
