The WFN Education Committee website has developed rapidly in the past months, since its establishment at the WCN 2011 in Marrakech. The aim of this section is

  • To facilitate the work of the committee and staff, restricted to staff and committee members
  • Offerings and applications to participate
  • Program accreditation and co-sponsorship

The Education portfolio currently includes opportunities for pre-graduate and pre-medical students, neurology residents and young neurologists.  Its aims are to:

  • work with individuals, institutions and professional organisations
  • provide World Congress of Neurology (WCN) teaching courses planned by the Teaching Course Committee
  • Coordinate the AAN-WFN Continuum Education Programme
  • a page for residents and young neurologists (also on Twitter)
  • regional programs worldwide
  • grants
  • a students' Landing page

The Education Committee have developed Standard Operating Procedures in:

  • Teaching Centres
  • WCN Teaching Courses
  • Sub-specialty Endorsement
  • Department Visits
  • Education Grant Monitoring
