For Fellows: AES PRO

AES Professor's Rounds Online (AES PRO)

The AES PRO program (login required) is a three-month pilot program beginning in July 2020 designed to meet the educational needs of epilepsy fellows through a live online activity each week. 

The AES PRO curriculum is comprised of four activities featuring topics important to fellows and presented by leading epilepsy professionals:

  1. Career Development Webinar
  2. Case Conference
  3. Journal Club
  4. Epilepsy Grand Rounds

This new program aims to introduce epilepsy fellows to colleagues in other institutions and to promote collaboration and networking amongst trainees and senior faculty. Fellows will learn about epilepsy and about the community of professionals that work in the field and make up AES.
