Student related activities the EAN is currently offering
In early 2021, the EAN proudly introduced the new Student Task Force, devoted to promoting EAN activities and the neurology domain among medical students.
The Student Task Force offers all medical students an opportunity to publish articles on our news blog, EANpages, within the Students’ Corner category, including creative ‘Why neurology?’ – essays. The winners of the essay contest will receive free registration for an EAN Congress and are invited to present their essays onsite. You can find our previous winning essays here (2021) and here (2022).
Each year, Student Task Force members review the Congress programme and select those sessions which are suitable for undergraduate medical students. You can easily check which sessions are most beneficial for you with this new feature!
More about the Student Task Force’s objectives can be found here.
Student Teaser Fellowship
The aim of this new fellowship is to give medical students* the opportunity and experience of gaining insight into neurology in general or in a specific domain of interest, while they are still doing their medical studies.
By taking part in exchange programmes, students can improve their medical education, get experience in other departments, and foster networking. All this will help them in deciding between general neurology or certain neurological sub-fields.
More information can be found here.

The Student Task Force is also in charge of a new area within EANpages, which offers our student members a platform to publish articles that would be beneficial and interesting for fellow students.
More information on submitting an article can be found here.
Students on Scientific Panels
In summer 2022 the EAN introduced a new membership benefit for Student Members: the option to join the EAN Scientific & Coordinating Panels.
Often referred to as the organisation’s ‘scientific backbone’, the panels have a hand in everything the EAN does from a scientific point of view, including coordinating clinical research, disseminating good practice, assisting in planning the EAN annual congress, supporting the EAN’s educational efforts, and producing guidelines that assist neurologists in daily practice.
By joining, Student Members will receive direct insight into the multifaceted work of the panels and of the EAN in general. Student Members will be invited to join the panels’ annual business meetings during the EAN Congress, will be added to the MyEAN Group of the respective panels in the registered user area, and will be listed among the panel members on the EAN website.
If you are interested in joining any of the EAN Scientific & Coordinating Panels, fill out your application today!
Kindly note, that Student membership is mandatory in order to take part in the EAN activities above.
