University Hospitals Neurological Institute to present 6th International 2013 Epilepsy Colloquium

December 17, 2012

In partnership with Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals Neurological Institute will present the 6th International Epilepsy Colloquium on tumoral epilepsy and epilepsy surgery in Cleveland, Ohio, May 20-24, 2013.

The International Epilepsy Colloquia (IEC) represent a joint initiative from several major epilepsy centers: Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals Case Medical Center; EpilepsieZentrum in Marburg, Germany; and University Hospital Institute for Children and Adolescents with Epilepsy - IDEE in Lyon, France; and Grenoble University Hospital in Grenoble, France.

The symposium is designed for epileptologists, neurosurgeons and pediatric neurologists. Residents/fellows, nurses, neuropsychologists, EEG technologists and other health care professionals may also find this education of value. Awards will be given for poster submissions.

Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Program highlights include:

Epileptology Course - May 20 - 21
