EPNS Training Courses

The main role of the EPNS Education and Training Committee is to facilitate training courses around Europe. The EPNS has a programme of training courses to offer fellows and (young) paediatric neurologists the opportunity to learn paediatric neurology at a level prescribed by the Syllabus of the EPNS, to meet experts in the field and to exchange knowledge and personal experience.

EPNS Masterclasses

EPNS Fellowships

To create excellence by offering the financially supported opportunity for further qualification or experience in an area of paediatric neurology in terms of clinical practice or research.

EPNS Visiting Teachers

A volunteer professor / senior/ distinguished member of the EPNS, from Europe who is a recognised expert in a certain field, visits a nominated host centre in a country in Europe which is classified by the World Bank per capita income group 1, 2 or 3, or EPNS category WB4B for a short stay of intense teaching. Travel and stay will be supported by EPNS. It may be considered that these visits will take place annually thereafter, if the first visit proves to be a success.

EPNS supporting an educational event
