Resident EEG Course

The nomination window for this program has closed.


AES is offering a Resident EEG Course for up to 20 residents as an introduction to the current practice of EEG. The Resident EEG Course will occur during the AES2020 virtual event.


The purpose of this multi-day course is to provide an interactive structured curriculum on pediatric and adult electroencephalography (EEG), taught by a variety of epileptologist educators. Historical, physiological, and technical aspects of EEG will be discussed. The course will use multiple learning strategies including focused brief didactic lectures, structured hands-on experience, and educator-led small group sessions. The bulk of the course will be a boot camp of EEG interpretation including the ABCs of artifact, benign variants, and coma patterns; the gamut from encoches frontales to electrocerebral silence; the spectrum of interictal to ictal patterns; and more.

Course Aims

  1. Stimulate early interest in EEG and its application among neurology residents
  2. Facilitate early development of interest in epilepsy among neurology trainees
  3. Provide opportunities for networking to neurology trainees at the incipient career level
