General training course information: The EPNS has been organising training courses in the Caucasus region in alternate years covering topics related to paediatric neurology since 2014. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the 4th in the series transitioned to a fully virtual event, and now in 2022 we are delighted to offer the best of both worlds by welcoming delegates back to Tbilisi whilst also offering the flexibility of virtual attendance for delegates where this works better.

IMPORTANT: Participants must be EPNS members who have paid their 2022 annual membership fee to attend EPNS training courses. If you are not a member, here is the application form https://www.epns.info/become-an-epns-member/new-membership-application/  or please email info@epns.info for more information.
