The International League Against Epilepsy is developing interactive, online epilepsy training modules. Each training module will be based on a clinical case that a ‘doctor’ needs to treat in a virtual hospital.

EpiCARE will join this initiative and develop 10 rare epilepsy training modules.

In 2020, the ILAE Academy will launch a series of case-based eLearning modules for epileptology for Level 1 (Entry) addressing all learning objectives specified in the recently published curriculum.

In preparation for the launch, the ILAE Academy will be open for an exclusive Pilot Phase! Free access to a series of 3 newly designed self-paced e-learning courses presenting common epilepsies in a patient case scenario to successful applicants.

Participants should provide feedback however, to help erase bugs and refine the courses to user needs. Certificates can be earned upon passing a final test and completing the feedback form.

When the Academy will be fully active our teaching portfolio will include:

  • Self-paced (tutorless) case-based e-learning courses on the most common epilepsies – from diagnosis to treatment
  • Self-paced (tutorless) neuroimaging e-learning course
  • VIREPA tutor-based courses in EEG
  • Resources such as EpilepsyDiagnosis.org diagnostic manual, eBrain modules, open-access publications, and ILAE clinical practice guidelines

Openings for the Pilot Phase are limited to 50 participants and our web-based application will close November 29 (1st come 1st serve). The Pilot Phase will end January 6th, 2020.

Target audience: Healthcare professionals at the entry level for epileptology (ILAE Curriculum level 1)
