This ETRN contains a core curriculum for European residents in adult neurology. The content aims to define skills needed to diagnose and treat patients with neurological diseases as outlined by the guidelines of the EAN.
The endeavor of this document is to promote high standards of care for patients with neurological conditions throughout the European member states and sets the basic requirements in the domains listed to enable specialists to move across European country borders for professional purposes.
The European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) commits itself to contribute to the improvement of medical training at the European level through the development of European standards in the different medical disciplines.
The European professional advisory organization for neurology is the Section of Neurology of the UEMS (UEMS-SN) who has published the previous version in 2016.
The present update was realized with the input of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), including its Scientific Panels, and the support of education experts.
The aims of the UEMS-SN and EAN regarding education and training are to ensure that minimal standards for the qualification of European neurologists are achieved.
