Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre

Department of Clinical Neurosciences

We are delighted to announce the 2023 Basic MRI physics course. This is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, University of Dundee, VUB Brussels, K.U.Leuven, Universidad Politechnica Madrid and the Technical University of Łódź.

This course includes formal lectures accompanied by supervised tutorial Q & A sessions on MR physics. We cover everything from basic NMR, T1 and T2 building up to advanced neuro, body and cardiovascular applications. No previous knowledge of MR physics is assumed.

A certificate of attainment will be awarded to attendees who successfully complete the course and 25 CME credits will be applied for.

The registration fee for this one week residential course is £675, reduced to £490 for students (proof of status required) and will include all of the lectures and tutorials, electronic access to all course materials, lunch and refreshments for each day of the course. In addition, the fee includes a welcome drinks reception and a social three-course formal dinner within Fitzwilliam College, in the Old Senior Combination Room.

Accommodation is not included in course registration, but we are pleased to have obtained a discounted rate for accommodation at Fitzwilliam College for just £59.50 per night for attendees of the course. Details on how to book this will be sent to registrants.
