Founded by the late Dr. John Gates of the Minnesota Epilepsy Group, PA®, the NRSP is in its eleventh year of educating residents about epilepsy to improve patient care. The curriculum is intended to augment general neurology residency programs. With epilepsy presenting in a third of adult neurological disorders and more than two thirds of pediatric neurological cases, there is a definite need to better inform general neurologists about this condition.
Who Should Attend
Residents who attend the NRSP are selected by their program directors. Ideal candidates for the program are committed to improving their diagnostic skills and furthering their knowledge of the treatment of epilepsy. During this one-day meeting, residents attend interactive lectures and participate in breakout workshops with colleagues from across the United States. Each resident is required to prepare a brief essay (200 words or less) on why they should be chosen to attend the NRSP.
Participants who attend the 2013 NRSP will receive a PDF handout available for download before the program and several other resources relating to the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
