On behalf of the Neuropsychology Task Force of the International League Against Epilepsy, we are pleased to announce the third residential ILAE Training Course in Neuropsychology in Epilepsy, which will be held from Sunday 29th March 2020 to 3rd April 2020.
Set in the beautiful Château de Suduiraut in Bordeaux, France the course is designed for neuropsychologists and other epilepsy health clinicians to advance their knowledge of neuropsychological approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of people with epilepsy.
Participants will take part in lectures, case presentations, and discussions designed to illustrate contemporary principles of differential diagnosis and case formulation in neuropsychological practice in epilepsy and epilepsy surgery. Course material will be presented by an international faculty made up of the clinicians who are at the forefront of evidence based practice in this field.
With strictly limited numbers and full board accommodation on site, the course provides unparalleled opportunities for participants to build lasting professional networks to support both their clinical and research endeavors on completion of the course.
We hope you can join us, and look forward to welcoming you in Provence.
