General information: The EPNS has been organising training courses in paediatric neurology since 2003 specifically aiming at trainees but also at qualified paediatric neurologists who want to refresh their knowledge on certain topics. The aim is to cover most main topics in the syllabus over a three-year cycle and to promote contact between individuals in the speciality in different parts of the world. The 2021-2023 cycle of training courses is taking place in Jurmala, Latvia, however in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic after careful consideration the decision has been taken to transition the EPNS Jurmala Training Course 2021 to a fully virtual event. EPNS delegates will experience the same level of expert training which they have come to expect but from the safety and convenience of a remote working location.

IMPORTANTParticipants must be EPNS members who have paid their 2021 annual membership fee to attend these training courses. If you are not a member, please email info@epns.info for more information.
