Tournament of the Minds

The Tournament of the Minds is a unique opportunity for WCN 2021 participants to interact with colleagues, test intellectual tenacity, and demonstrate national pride, all while competing in city or departmental teams. As such, the aim of the Tournament of the Minds is to provide an experience that is both educational and entertaining for participants, integrating various aspects of neurology.  This is the ninth time the Tournament has been organised by the World Federation of Neurology at a World Neurology Congress.

WFN member societies are invited to enter a team of 4 neurologists in the Tournament.

All teams will compete with each other in a knockout Qualifying Round, to answer questions on a range of neurological topics based on clinical cases from around the world; the questions will focus on visual material, videos and stills, with a minimum of text. The 8 teams that achieve the highest scores will progress to a Semi-Final Round and compete in two groups of 4 teams, with the winners of each group advancing to the Final.
