Course description

This is a 3 day residential EEG course with an emphasis on interactive, hands-on experience. This annual course is now running for the third year and for the first time outside of Cambridge, UK. Previous courses were greatly appreciated by the international delegates (see testimonies below). In view of the high demand, the course will be held in Asia in 2020 to reach a wider audience from resource limited settings. The content covers normal maturational aspects, abnormal EEG patterns and graphoelements 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 auspice of the ILAE Diagnostic Methods Commission and is supported by the Indian Epilepsy Association Kochi.
