by Thomas Berger, Chair of the e-learning Subcommittee
eBrain was successfully developed within 24 months by a small but effective lead team (S. Shorvon, S. Thompson, K. Hardy-Smith, H. Cock, T. Berger), representing the unique partnership of the UK Joint Neurosciences Council, the University College of London, the ENS and EFNS, and, most importantly, an exceptionally large number of more than 450 European module editors and session authors. eBrain was launched at the 15th EFNS Congress in Budapest and on November 25, 2011, at the Royal College of Surgeons in London.
eBrain, described as “a revolution in medical education and neurosciences” (1, 2), represents with currently more than 600 e-learning sessions the largest, most comprehensive web-based training resource in clinical neurosciences, and can support both training and continuous professional development. Thus, this unique e-learning programme bears the potential to merge European expertise and teaching competence in a European gold standard for learning and continuous medical education in the clinical neurosciences.
eBrain access is for free for EFNS and ENS members as well as EFNS Associate member societies.
