  • NANSIG (International society) junior doctor recruitment

Established in 2010, the Neurology and Neurosurgery Interest Group (NANSIG) allows medical students and junior doctors to gain relevant insight and experience in Neurology and Neurosurgery. We manage over 1000 members internationally, providing educational material, mentoring facilities and seminars which facilitate student career development, including our annual careers day which regularly attract 3-digit numbers of delegates. We work with universities across the UK through our UK network of university representatives.

As the largest group of its kind, we are proud to work in partnership with the Society of British Neurosurgeons and the Association of British Neurologists in the UK.

This year we are trying to create a network of driven junior doctors across the UK - Our society offers a range of great opportunities including:

  • National research
  • Educational content and teaching opportunities
  • Monthly Journal clubs
  • Webinars
  • Organizing and assisting with National Conferences
