Become part of Europe’s largest neurology network

According to the latest estimates, one in two people will have a neurological disease at some point in their life. Extended lifespans are also leading to a significant increase in neurological disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. It is our vision to provide every single one of these patients with the best possible diagnoses and therapies. And we are on course to succeed. Neuroscience has made huge leaps over the last two decades. It is now widely seen as one of the most important medical disciplines of the 21st century. Our aim is to share this expertise with as many neurologists as possible in our member countries, and beyond. EAN provides access to continuing medical training and education, international knowledge resources and platforms that allow cross-border communication between colleagues.
You, too, can become a valued participant in this project, no matter your specialty. Let’s all strive for excellence in neurology together.
