Resident’s Reading List

For many neurological conditions there are guidelines and expert statements available. Journals focus on trainees teaching topics (e.g. practical neurology). Furthermore, there are many reviews on clinical issues of variable quality.

The aim is to build a reading list of high-quality and up-to-date reviews on core neurology curriculum areas for reading across Europe. The focus should be clinical and practical, to guide neurology trainees learning their trade in optimal standards of diagnosis, investigation and management in daily clinical practice.

You can find below a list of reviews, recommended by the EAN Scientific Panels.
