Membership of the PRCSBI is free and open to all researchers and clinicians involved in stroke and concussive brain injury research, education, prevention and service delivery.
The PRCSBI has two tiers of membership: full member and affiliate member.
Full membership is available to HMRI UoN and HNELHD researchers, clinicians and students. Full membership provides access to PRCSBI events, news and funding schemes, as well as events and support offered through HMRI and UoN. Full members must hold a minimum 50% membership with the PRCSBI, and must also be a member of the HMRI Brain and Mental Health Program. Students do not need to hold membership of the PRC or HMRI Program, however their primary supervisor must do so.
Affiliate membership is available to researchers, clinicians and students outside the Hunter New England region, or local members who do not wish to align to the HMRI Brain and Mental Health Program. Affiliate members can access PRCSBI events and news, as well as relevant free support networks through our partners.
