EAN-AFAN Regional Teaching Courses in sub-Saharan Africa

In agreement with AFAN and in view of the ongoing pandemic that would put at risk participating faculty and residents, the 12th RTC has been postponed to late 2021. Details will follow as soon as available. The possible options of the postponement will be decided and further information will be available at the earliest possible moment and announced.

The RTCs in SSA aim at bringing teaching of excellence to residents in neurology and neighboring specialties in the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa. 

The RTC is organised in cooperation with AFAN – African Academy of Neurology - and other scientific societies who through their contribution make the RTC possible.

The EAN Task Force “Neurology and Africa” together with the EAN Education Committee and Quality Assurance task-force guarantee the high scientific standard of the RTC.

This educational activity in SSA started in 2008 and saw the participation of about 800 residents from over 20 countries of SSA.

The EAN Head Office together with the Chairperson of the EAN Task Force “Neurology and Africa” and the local organiser are responsible for the logistics surrounding the RTC in SSA.
