Our most popular workshop through 2018-2019. This course is intended for clinicians who want to develop skills in assessing vestibular disorders. With a large practical component to this workshop which includes hands-on with various equipment, case studies and ocular motor response training. The limited delegate numbers ensure a bespoke, relaxed and fun learning experience.

The Bronze level is best suited to those who have little experience of Vestibular Testing and want to attend a foundation workshop; interaction is encouraged from the delegates to get as much from the three days as possible. By the end of the three days, delegates should have the tools to begin seeing vestibular patients under supervision.

Delegates must attend all three days to receive the Bronze Hypatia Scroll in Vestibular Assessment.
