When and Where is the Cambridge Dementia Course?

The 13th Cambridge Dementia Course will be held on 5th to 7th December 2018 at Homerton College, Cambridge (UK).


The course is three days. The first day covers more basic subjects such as history taking and short cognitive tests. Days 2 and 3 are more advanced. Places can be booked for day 1 only, days 2 & 3 only, or for the full three day course.

Bookings are only accepted from the June before the course. Approximately 80 places are available, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Extract from a review in the ACNR:

This course was certainly a comprehensive review of the clinical assessment and management of patients with dementia and it succeeded in linking together the underlying pathology, neuroimaging and neuropsychology. I feel this course was both fascinating and relevant. I would certainly recommend it as one of the ‘must attend’ courses for neurology trainees.

Teaching at the Cambridge Dementia Course

The teaching is a mixture of lectures, workshops and video sessions, covering subjects such as history taking, examination, bedside cognitive testing, formal cognitive testing and investigations. There will also be specific sessions covering Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy Bodies and rare forms of dementia.

The course is run by Dr Jeremy Brown and Dr Andrew Graham, Consultants in the Memory Clinic at Addenbrooke's Hospital. As in previous successful courses the course will be taught mainly by consultants in the Cambridge memory clinic, with Professor Hodges and other invited speakers. A number of adjustments have been made accommodating feedback from the last courses.
