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 3 year cycle of training courses in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, was completed in May 2014.
The next cycle of training courses (2015-2017) will be taking place in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary.
