Global Neurology Education

Neurologic education is a global enterprise, and effective neurologic education is needed for optimal prevention, diagnosis, and management of neurologic disease worldwide. The 2015 Education Special Interest Group session will discuss the role of U.S. neurology residents in training local providers and sustaining neurology care in low income countries; the development of a certificate program in global and humanitarian neurology for neurology residents; the role of U.S. Neurology residents and students as embedded medical educators internationally; ongoing regional educational initiatives for neurology trainees from low income countries, and the role of bidirectional partnerships in global neurology education and research training. Brief presentations by experts involved in these initiatives will be followed by ample time for a lively discussion.
