The Flying Faculty was established to advance education in those countries where neurorehabilitation is in its infancy. It delivers an expert training programme to a diverse group of health professionals in a short, intensive time period.
Neurorehabilitation best works as team approach. There are, however, some educational programmes that present the state-of-the-art across areas of neurorehabilitation (NR) in both a concise and comprehensive way with a clear focus on clinical practice.
WFNR Teaching Course – one way to contribute to the development of neurorehabilitation services globally.
Alongside the work of the Flying Faculty, WFNR works on a number of other activities throughout the world to help and assist with the advancement of neurorehabilitation.
Our junior investigator mentorship aims to promote the professional development of young researchers and established investigators by pairing them with an experienced researcher whose research interests overlap.
The Young WFNR membership is open to healthcare professionals interested in the field of neurorehabilitation with a cumulative professional experience of up to 10 years.
WFNR produces regular webinars covering a broad range of neurorehabilitation topics. The webinars are free of charge and are available to view in the Webinar Archive after the event.
