The 18th course of the Spring School attracted attention of 187 colleagues from 36 countries. Due to the capacity reasons we were forced to refuse one third of the applicants. Traditionally the highest interest was from Russia – 29, Uzbekistan – 21 and Romania – 19. As usually we had again delegates from mediterranian Africa. this year, we had 90 female participants and 31 male participants.
Participants had the great opportunity to listen to very high quality lectures on the following topics: Inflammatory Neuropathies, Multiple Sclerosis and Stroke.
Afternoon workshops in small groups provided interractive case presentations, overview of guidelines on diagnostic and therapuetic protocols and interactive discussions with participants.
Our distinguished lecturers came from Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy and The Netherlands.
On the last day, according to our tradition, the programme was devoted to educational possibilities for young neurologist in neurosciences, European Board Examination in Neurology and information about the activities of WHO in the field of Neurosciences.
Both participants and the lecturers were very satisfied with the scientific and social content of this year EAN Spring School and had a very positive feedback.
Besides the professional program, we have also prepared excellent cultural program. One evening most participants climbed on the hill of Bezděz, to visit the remains of a Gothic castle dominating over the beautiful countryside. Another evening we visited Mnichovo Hradiště castle. The tour of the castle was followed by a social evening with singing, dancing and live music. On Sunday afternoon the participants had the opportunity to take part in a short walk through Prague.
