Acting as an expert witness for medico-legal cases is both challenging and crucial. It requires not only specialist knowledge and expertise in medical practices but also the ability to communicate effectively in legal settings.

To support the continuous development of NRC Medical Experts and to provide neurorehabilitation professionals new to medico legal work with vital knowledge, we are pleased to announce a training day dedicated to established and aspiring medical expert witnesses.

About our expert witness training day

Join NRC on Wednesday 2 October 2024 in London and hear from experienced medical professionals, including NRC’s Founding Director and Neurorehabilitation Consultant, Dr. Edmund Bonikowski, with further speakers to be announced.

This informal event, with time for networking and conversations with fellow experts, will allow attendees to learn from one another, share experiences, and build connections that go beyond the session.

Beyond the Essentials of Expert Witness Work

Whilst the full agenda is under development, attendees can anticipate expert-led sessions on topics such as Functional Neurological Disorder (FND) and Life Expectancy. These training sessions are created to provide relevant knowledge and a deep understanding of complex medical issues frequently encountered in legal cases.

This tailor-made training day is the perfect setting to update your continuous professional development and spend time with fellow neurorehabilitation professionals. Whether you are an established expert or new to expert witness work, it’s an ideal opportunity to enhance your skills.
