Young Epilepsy Section (YES)


A key overall objective of ILAE-YES is to improve access to up to date educational resources for young or new professionals in epilepsy, regardless of their location, language, or setting.

ILAE-YES Task Forces and working groups have curated the below library of easy-to-use resources that can be used by professionals in epilepsy to learn about cutting-edge advances in the field and important guidelines for clinical care. We also suggest following YES on social media to stay updated of new educational resources as they become available.

DISCLAIMER: All resources are based on current peer-reviewed sources and often peer-reviewed by ILAE mentors, but recommendations should only be used by appropriately qualified professionals and does not constitute medical advice to individual patients.
