EPNS VIRTUAL – Neuromuscular Diseases
12 - 13 Apr 2021
Event details
General Information
The European Paediatric Neurology Society (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 2021-2023 cycle of training courses is taking place in Jurmala, Latvia, however in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic after careful consideration the decision has been taken to transition the EPNS Jurmala Training Course 2021 to a fully virtual event. EPNS delegates will experience the same level of expert training which they have come to expect but from the safety and convenience of a remote working location. 
 
IMPORTANT: Participants must be EPNS members who have paid their 2021 annual membership fee to attend these training courses. If you are not a member, please email info@epns.info for more information. 
 
Registration
The EPNS Jurmala Training Course 2021 consists of two 2-day training courses. Participants can either register for 1 (i.e., 2 days) or 2 training courses (i.e., 4 days) via the following links. If you wish to attend both courses, please register for them separately.
