We are delighted to announce the 2023 participants of the EAN Tournament for neurologists in training. Ten participants will each make a six-minute presentation during our special Tournament Finals session at EAN 2023, which will also be broadcast live on EAN TV! This year, both the basic and clinical categories, will be contested within one grand final instead of two separate sessions.
A panel of four experts will judge the presentations and select two winners (one basic, one clinical) at the end of the session. The winners will receive free congress registration for the 10th EAN Annual Congress, in Helsinki, Finland, in 2024 including four nights’ accommodation and a travel grant. Two runners-up (one basic, one clinical) will also receive free registration for EAN 2024.
Tune in to the EAN Tournament Finals on Sunday, 2 July 2023, 17:30 – 19:00, in Room Amsterdam!
