VIREPA Distance Education Program
2015-2016 VIREPA courses
The International League Against Epilepsy’s Virtual Epilepsy Academy (VIREPA) provides a variety of online courses about the diagnosis, treatment and management of epilepsy. The internet-based, e-moderated courses are highly interactive and involve a great deal of collaboration and discussion among students and faculty. The courses are primarily intended for neurologists, paediatric neurologists and paediatricians, neuropsychiatrists and neuropsychologists, epilepsy nurses and nurse practitioners dealing with patients with epilepsy. However some courses are appropriate for neurophysiologists and basic scientists including geneticists, physiologists and neuroscientists, who are dealing with patients with epilepsy.
