6th Eilat International Educational Course on the Pharmacological Treatment of Epilepsy (6thEilat Edu)
Jerusalem, Israel (12-16 October 2015)
The Eilat International Educational Course on The Pharmacological Treatment of Epilepsy (EilatEdu) has a unique focus on basic and clinical pharmacology of epilepsy. It thus specializes in the unmet niche of pharmacology not covered by other international courses and conferences. Since 2005 it has managed to build a group of eminent epileptologistsas teachers who are available throughout the course to answer the students' (young neurologists) questions. Although the Eilat Course is one of the three core courses of the CEA, it is also open to students throughout the world who compete equally with European students for bursaries.
