  • Approved as Teaching Center October 2013

The Rabat neurological department consists of several sections: an outpatient’s service which is closely associated with neurosurgery, neuroradiology, neuropathology and with the national center of rehabilitation and neurosciences.

The practical visit was guided through the neurological departments, as well as the laboratories, including histopathology, chemistry and genetics.  The visit included the electrophysiology laboratories, where practical teaching was observed.

The structure of the visit was supplemented by interviews with residents, teaching professors, hospital staff as well as the director of the hospital.

Based on the visit, including discussions, there were presentations of the faculty, and detailed analysis of the various aspects of the department.  The visiting committee was fully satisfied that the Hospital Center Ibnou Sina, Rabat, is fully compliant with all aspects of a WFN training center. It will be able and willing to train not only its own national neurologists, but neurologists from Africa and elsewhere and will be providing one year fellowships, as well as a full four year training programs.
