EPNS Training Course 2017: Budapest, Hungary
4-5 April 2017: Infantile Metabolic Encephalopathies (IME) and Neonatal Neurology
6-7 April 2017: Neuromuscular disorders
The EPNS has been organising training courses in paediatric neurology since 2003 specifically aiming at trainees but also at qualified paediatric neurologists who want to refresh their knowledge on certain topics. The aim is to cover most main topics in the syllabus over a three-year cycle and to promote contact between individuals in the speciality in different parts of Europe. The course has a highly interactive character and participants are encouraged to bring (difficult) cases to discuss. The number of participants is limited and applicants who wish to attend both courses will be given priority over those who wish to attend one of the two courses. The current cycle of training courses (2015-2017) is taking place in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary.

The EPNS is delighted to offer 20 bursaries.
Who can apply for a bursary? Applicants must be a member of the EPNS and have paid their 2017 annual subscription fee. Applicants should be a resident in paediatric neurology, neurology or paediatrics, or a young paediatric neurologist. Applicants must reside in a European country; this is taken as the region for which the European Office of WHO is responsible http://www.euro.who.int/en/countries .Bursary applicants who wish to attend both training courses will be given priority over those who wish to attend one of the two courses.
What does the bursary cover? The bursary will fully cover both the training course fees, accommodation in a shared room for 3 nights in case of single course, for 5 nights in case of both courses and all meals, including breakfast.
What does the bursary not cover? The bursary will not cover any other costs, including travel costs. The bursary will not cover the cost of staying in a single room, but if the successful bursary participant would prefer a single room, they can cover this cost themselves. The single supplement is 14 Euros per person per night.
Who will make the decision about the bursary applications? The Chair of EPNS Education & Training Committee will review the applications and make the final decision.
When is the closing date for bursary applications? The closing date for applications is 1 March 2017
