EPNS Training Programme

12-15 April, 2021 - Jūrmala, Latvia


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.  One initiative is the ‘3-year cycle’ of training courses. The aim of this scheme is to cover most main topics in the syllabus over a three-year cycle and to promote contact between individuals in the specialty 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 style of teaching will combine lectures, workshops and interactive sessions.

From 2021-2023 you are most welcome to attend the 6th series training in Jūrmala, Latvia!

12-13 April 2021: Neuromuscular diseases. Moderator Professor Thomas Sejersen
14-15 April 2021: Neonatal Neurology. Moderator Professor Leena Haataja

Apart from an interactive scientific program, a rich social program will be offered. The chosen city is Jūrmala, famous for its natural curative features – mild climate, sea and salubrious air, medical mud and spa water. The resort has a unique 32 km long golden sandy beach, vast pine forests and a blue natural border – the Lielupe River.

Looking forward meeting you in Jūrmala in the spring of 2021!
