The European, Middle East and Africa Chapter is looking forward to welcoming you to its meeting, The 15th European Congress in Clinical Neurophysiology in Brno, Czech Republic, September 30th- October 3rd. It has made available bursaries and these have been taken up by trainees in Clinical Neurophysiology from member countries in all three parts of our chapter, including Africa.

The last IFCN-EU Survey of Training and Practice was initiated by the ExCo in 2012, (click here to review the results). ExCo EC-IFCN has followed this up by recently asking national societies for any significant changes in the last 3 years. None was reported. The survey revealed several significant differences in both training and practice between countries.

Patients within the European Union should expect the same care wherever they live and yet we cannot claim similar training or practice throughout our chapter’s member countries. To address this, ExCo, EC-IFCN has formed a Working Party to work towards a European Curriculum in Clinical Neurophysiology (and in time a European Exit from Training Examination). It met for the first time recently in Frankfurt. A draft document was developed which is at present circulating round national societies. This will be discussed further at the European Chapter meeting in Brno.
Our Chapter has four significant goals: to read about them, please click here.

Clinical Neurophysiology encompasses a broad array of methods to study the peripheral and central nervous system, and targets virtually all diseases in neurology and psychiatry.
