In May (for the first time since 2019), the European Academy of Neurology (EAN) held the traditional educational course – EAN Spring School, an event long awaited by neurologists from across the world.
Post-graduate student of the Neurology and Psychiatry Department with the Clinic of the Medical Education Institute Patimat Isabekova was selected based on her individual professional achievements and was invited by the hosts of EAN educational events to Austria.
The rich program of the course included daily lectures and workshops. The topics were mostly focused on disorders of wakefulness and consciousness: lecturers from Austria and France gave presentations on the diagnosis and treatment of hypersomnia and sleep behavior disorders; the speeches by Danish and Austrian experts were devoted to acute and chronic disorders of consciousness and brain death criteria.
On the last day of the school, representatives of the Movement Disorder Society from Germany and the Czech Republic discussed the topical issues of functional movement disorders, emergency conditions and approaches to their treatment.
After the end of the daily official events, the discussions did not stop, but only revived in an informal setting. The participants continued to passionately discuss the topics of interest, get to know each other, learn the intricacies of neurological practice in different countries, exchange experiences and plan promising joint projects.
“I am grateful to the Neurology and Psychiatry Department with the Clinic for the opportunity to visit the EAN Spring School and to the hosts for organizing an educational event of this level,” said Patimat Isabekova.
