I had the opportunity to be one of the young neurologists chosen by the EFNS Education Committee to receive an educational fellowship. This was a 6 month fellowship in Neuro-infectious diseases that took place in the Department of Neurology and the HIV Unit of the Royal London Hospital in London, under the supervision of Prof Gavin Giovanonni and Dr Mónica Marta. Here I had the chance to follow experienced neurologists in their activities in the ward, outpatient clinic, meetings and research projects.
I would like to report on the 6 months that I spent at the centre of dizziness and balance disorders in the Neurology Department (Head: Professor Dr. Thomas Münte) at the University Hospital of Schleswig Holstein in Lübeck, Germany, as a fellow in the Educational Fellowship Programme of the European Federation of Neurological Societies (EFNS). Professor Christoph Helmchen, the head of the centre of dizziness and balance disorders in Lübeck, was my tutor during this period and I had the chance to join his research group.
