5th ILAE School on EEG in the First Year of Life: From newborn to toddler

IMA House in Cochin, Kerala, India

3 - 5 March 2023

ILAE Curriculum Learning Objectives addressed by this course

This is a 3-day residential EEG course with an emphasis on interactive, hands-on experience. This annual course is now running for the fifth year and for the second time outside of Cambridge, UK. Previous courses were greatly appreciated by the international delegates. In view of the high demand, the course will be held again in Asia in 2023 to reach a wider audience from resource limited settings. The content covers normal maturational aspects, abnormal EEG patterns and grapho elements in neonates and infants as well as the range of seizures and epilepsies encountered in day to day practice in the first year of life. It consists of a standardized teaching module with lectures and practical workshops during which EEG examples will be reviewed by participants in small groups under the supervision of a faculty tutor.

The course is targeted at neurologists (pediatric and adult), clinical neurophysiologists, and neonatologists who deal with neonates and infants with seizures or epilepsy. It is limited to a maximum of 100 participants, so early booking is strongly recommended. Basic EEG knowledge is a requirement for the course and applicants will be selected on the basis of their CVs.

The course is organized under the auspices of the ILAE Academy and is supported by the Indian Epilepsy Association Kochi.

Course Directors: Dr. Ronit Pressler (UK), Dr. Vinayan K.P (India) and Dr. Monika Eisermann (France)
