Sadly, the ILAE British Branch team have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Teaching Weekend to a weekend in September 2022.
Conditions permitting, this event will be run as an in-person event.
With the continued uncertainty over in-person meetings, this year’s event will take place virtually.
We are therefore delighted to invite you to join us for this leading educational programme which will include a series of lectures,
video sessions and informal seminars covering the most important areas of current clinical epilepsy practice.
Our speakers are all internationally recognised experts in their fields, creating a dynamic programme which has consistently
attracted large audiences comprising Senior Registrars, Consultants and other specialists in the field of epilepsy.
Feedback from previous attendees rates the Teaching Weekend as a “must attend” event for any registrar looking to advance to a consultant role in this field.
This year’s course promises to be every bit as popular and engaging as the previous weekends – indeed, we anticipate that
the virtual format of the event may well encourage a greater attendance than the in-person events.
The programme will commence at 09:00 on Saturday 18 September and concludes at 16:00 on Sunday 19 September.
The course is made possible by educational grants from the Pharmaceutical Industry together with a modest delegate fee to cover the cost of the meeting.
Due to the confidential nature of the clinical content presented during the programme, we are unable to make presentations or videos available for viewing after the event.
One of the best traditions in UK neurology has been the ILAE British Branch epilepsy teaching course.
This is one of the highlights of our teaching calendar, and has been the exemplar for our teaching programme which has helped bring generations of neurology trainees to the epilepsy community. This course covers all aspects of basic science, diagnosis, treatment and associated comorbidities, providing valuable help in planning how to manage epilepsy in general and in specialist clinics alike.

The ILAE British Branch 18th Specialist Registrar Epilepsy Teaching Weekend has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom for 11 category 1 (external) CPD credits.
Epilepsy is the most common serious neurological disease in the UK and seizure disorders are seen frequently in both the neurology clinics and on the hospital wards. A sound grasp of the principles and pitfalls of epilepsy management is essential in order to diagnose and treat patients effectively and safely.
This weekend course delivers a comprehensive and contemporary approach to establishing a confident diagnosis, selecting and interpreting the most appropriate investigations, choosing the correct medical and surgical treatments and tailoring epilepsy management to specific populations such as the children, women and patients with intellectual disability.
