Brief outline of the course:

A well-established 1-day course for junior doctors and other health professionals with an interest in epilepsy.

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders. In the UK, 600,000 or one in every 103 people has epilepsy and each day 87 people are diagnosed with epilepsy. The ILAE British Chapter Clinical Epilepsy Course was successfully launched in 2014 and is now an annual event. The aim of the course is to provide a high quality education for junior doctors and allied health professions to develop a comprehensive and clear understanding of the diagnosis and management of patients with epilepsy.

The one day course takes the format of lectured style teaching and video sessions. The course content has been carefully tailored to cover a wide variety of topics related to epilepsy management for clinicians both in hospital and community settings. Each topic is founded on the latest clinical evidence and presented in a practical manner including detailed case discussions.

The course is aimed at FY1 and FY2 junior doctors, core trainees (CT 1/2), specialist trainees (ST 1/2) and specialist registrars in fields such as neurology, psychiatry, neuropsychology, neurosurgery, acute and emergency medicine. The ILAE Clinical Epilepsy Course is also aimed at GP trainees and general practitioners and other professionals are welcome to apply.
