European Examination in Neuropathology 2019:
The European Fellowship in Neuropathology (EFN) examination constitutes an assessment of the candidate’s knowledge of diagnostic neuropathology and his/her ability to apply that knowledge in the clinical practice.  The next exam is scheduled for June 8th-9th 2020, which is Monday and Tuesday following the 12th European Congress of Neuropathology in Odense, Denmark (3-6 June 2020). For requirements and application details please see the ‘European Fellowship of Neuropathology’ section of this website.

European Basic Course in Neuropathology, Aachen, Germany, 17-20 March 2020:
This Euro-CNS basic course is intended for trainees in general pathology, neuropathology, neurology or neurosurgery but also for neurobiologists and PhD students in neurological sciences.  Specifically for those who, in the course of their PhD research, will be involved with the neuropathology of, for example, neurodegenerative diseases, developmental diseases, brain tumors or white matter diseases. European (UEMS) Accreditation: 27 EACCME credits.Registration for this course is open. Now 10 seats left!

Fellowship Training Program. Call for candidates!
The Euro-CNS fellowship training program is intended to facilitate short (maximum 2 months) diagnostic training opportunities in either Tumour or Muscle and Nerve pathology for trainees in neuropathology. The individual training plan for each Fellow appointed to the scheme will reflect the skills and knowledge that are required by the home Institution and which can be implemented upon the trainee’s return. For more information, please visit the ‘Fellowship Training‘ page on this website. Applications can be submitted at all times.


Mission of Euro-CNS
Euro-CNS aims to promote and maintain the harmonisation of neuropathology training and clinical practice throughout Europe, and to promote the science of neuropathology and neuropathology research. Euro-CNS has programmes of scientific and clinical activity to support European Neuropathologists at both senior and junior level. Courses and congresses are held regularly to promote interest in the discipline, to facilitate the exchange of scientific information between members, and to help researchers and clinicians stay current with the latest advances in neuropathology. A European Neuropathology Exam is organized each year.

Topics covered are: general pathology of the central nervous system, muscle, nerve, tumours, neurodegenerative diseases, vascular pathology, infections of the CNS, human prion diseases, white matter diseases, metabolic diseases, developmental neuropathology and epilepsy. On one of the evenings there is a possibility to bring up intriguing or puzzling clinicopathological cases. Click here for more information and registration.


Euro-CNS Course ‘Tumors of the CNS’
 1-3 June 2020, Odense, Denmark

(this course is fully booked but the waiting list is still open)

The lectures will be given by a group of well known surgical neuropathologists. Histological slides of the whole spectrum of CNS tumors are available, and multiple time slots are planned for personal practical exercise as well as for interaction with the experts.
