  • 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
