Education

Education is a focus of ILAE’s activities, supporting the League’s mission to ensure that health professionals, governments, and the public world-wide have the essential educational and research resources to understand, diagnose, and treat persons with epilepsy. In addition to the regional and national congresses, conferences, symposia, and distance learning, ILAE is now formulating a new curriculum framework or “roadmap.”

New ILAE Education Roadmap

Following a systematic process and broad input from our world-wide constituency, the ILAE has assembled a competency-based curriculum that encompasses 7 domains of knowledge, 42 competencies, and 124 learning objectives.

The curriculum addresses three different levels of professional expertise: 1) Entry, 2) Proficiency, 3) Advanced proficiency. Educational activities of different types can be mapped to specific learning objectives and competencies.
