The Trustees of the World Federation of Neurology are now calling for nominations for the 2019 WFN medals. There are two medals, one for Service to International Neurology and one for Scientific Achievement in Neurology. Each award carries an honorarium of $5,000.

Nominations may be made by WFN member societies or by individual members of a member society; they should be seconded by at least five neurologists, at least three of whom should be from other WFN member societies.

The nominated individual should have approved his or her nomination and the principal proposer should write a citation of no more than 300 words in support of the nomination.  The Medal Committee will be made up of the current President of the WFN and either two of his predecessors or two WFN Trustees of the President’s choice.

The medals will be awarded during the 2019 World Congress of Neurology in Dubai.
