Fellowship Training Program. Call for candidates!

The Euro-CNS fellowship training program is intended to facilitate short (maximum 2 months) diagnostic training opportunities in either Tumour or Muscle and Nerve pathology for trainees in neuropathology. The individual training plan for each Fellow appointed to the scheme will reflect the skills and knowledge that are required by the home Institution and which can be implemented upon the trainee’s return. For more information, please visit the ‘Fellowship Training‘ page on this website. Applications can be submitted at all times.
