Back by popular demand, AES will be offering a live EEG course for up to 20 adult and pediatric junior residents as an introduction to the current practice of EEG. It will be held during the Annual Meeting on Friday, December 3 (full day) and Saturday, December 4 (half day) onsite in Chicago.
The purpose of this multi-day course is to provide an interactive workshop on pediatric and adult EEG, taught by experienced epileptologist educators. Historical, physiological, and technical aspects of EEG will be covered.
The course will use several learning strategies including didactic lectures, structured hands-on activities, educator-led group sessions, and networking sessions. The bulk of the course will be a boot camp of EEG interpretation including the ABCs of artifact, benign variants, and coma patterns; the gamut from encoches frontales to electrocerebral silence; the spectrum of interictal to ictal patterns; and more!
- Stimulate early interest in EEG and its application among neurology residents
- Facilitate early development of interest in epilepsy among neurology trainees
- Provide opportunities of networking for neurology trainees at the incipient career level
