Young Doctors Visit

Young doctors hospital visit, dinner and party on Sunday, 9 June 2013 – an EAYNT initiative

The European Association of Young Neurologists and Trainees (EAYNT) is proud to announce the details of another young doctors’ hospital visit during the 23rd ENS Meeting in Barcelona. This unique initiative succeeds the visits at ENS conferences in Milan (2009), Berlin (2010), Lisbon (2011), Prague (2012) and has become a tradition for junior colleagues interested in gaining insights into the fascinating spectrum of European clinical and academic neurology.

The visit is scheduled on the evening of Sunday, 9 June 2013 at the Department of Neurology-Neuroimmunology of the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, by the kind invitation of congress chairperson Prof. Xavier Montalban. His co-worker Prof. Jordi Rio and local residents will not only give an overview on residency training in Catalonia but also present recent clinical and scientific highlights from the department. Moreover, they will report on the work-flow and diagnostic approaches for acute neurological disorders at their hospital and guide through different subspecialties including the world-renowned multiple sclerosis centre. The activities will be continued at a typical Catalan restaurant where local specialties and beverages will be enjoyed while the participants can renew old friendships and meet new colleagues from all over the world.

Further information will be available at in March 2013 – registration will be possible exclusively via the contacts provided on the homepage on a first come first serve basis. Early registration is highly recommended following the experience from the recent years. The hospital visit will be free of charge, expenses in the restaurant and the party need to be covered individually by the participants.

Special Session ENS – EAYNT

Monday, 10 June 2013, 12.15 – 13.15
Translational Neurology – a challenge for clinician-scientists

Translational medicine is a rapidly emerging discipline focused on bridging technologies and discoveries in the laboratory with clinical research and practice. In this regard, clinician-scientists have brought a unique perspective to biomedical research that is inspired by their personal experience in caring for patients. Yet, there has been growing concern over the past three decades that the number of young academics striving for a career as clinician-scientist is declining. This special session, an initiative of the European Neurological Society and the European Association of Young Neurologists and Trainees, aims at illustrating the attractiveness of translational medicine as a career prospect for junior neurologists. The speakers will highlight their personal “bench to bedside” experience and illustrate key moments in their career. This lecture series was launched in 2012 and will include presentations of world-leading clinician-scientists in the field of coma, vertigo and neuroimaging in 2013.
