EPNS 2016 annual subscription fee payments now being taken – so don’t delay – if you haven’t yet paid your 2016 fee, why not pay today?

Thank you to the many members who have paid their 2016 annual subscription fee. Members who paid their 2015 currently have complimentary access the on-line EJPN http://www.ejpn-journal.com/, but this will be removed in February if the 2016 fee has not been received.

2016 fees offer great value: since 2015, fees have been reduced for our members in countries classified by the World Bank income groups 1,2 and 3, World Bank income group 4 have the same fees as 2015 and it has been possible to continue to offer the hugely discounted fee for on-line only access to the Journal to all trainees members. Visit http://www.epns.jmre.es/epns-subscription-fees/ for more information.



The easiest way to pay is online by logging onto the EPNS website http://www.epns.info/ The correct schedule of fees for 2016 for the country where you practice will have been automatically applied. You will need to click on the orange ‘I’m a member’ button on the right hand side of the screen, and you will be taken to the login screen. Your login name is usually your last name. Once you have logged in please select ‘Subscription’, then ‘Make new payment’, select your preferred membership type, add to cart, then check-out. There is a ‘forgotten your password’ facility if you need a password reminder.

EPNS Fellowship 2016 application period is now open!

Applicants will be informed of the outcome by the end of March 2016.  More details about the scheme, together with the application form, can be found by visiting the EPNS website http://www.epns.jmre.es/epns-fellowship-2016/



EPNS Visiting Teacher new initiative to be launched this month!
As the EPNS continues to grow and develop, the EPNS Education and Training Committee strives to look for new ways to achieve the Society’s goal to promote training, clinical care and scientific research in the field of Paediatric Neurology. Our latest new initiative is the ‘EPNS Visiting Teacher’ scheme. The concept is that a  volunteer professor / senior/ distinguished member of the EPNS, who is a recognised expert in a certain field, visits a nominated host country in Europe which is classified by the World Bank per capita income group 1, 2 or 3 for a short stay of intense teaching. Travel and stay will be supported by the EPNS.
My colleagues and I on the EPNS Education and Training Committee are pleased to announce that we will be launching the opportunity to apply to take part in this scheme this month! An email will follow later this week with further details and we are thrilled to say that we will be able to agree 2 successful Visiting Teacher applications.
Best wishes
Dr Coriene Catsman-Berrevoets
Chair of the EPNS Education and Training Committee
