The Course’s purpose is to update and qualify Professionals in Pediatric Electroencephalography.

The Course provides FAD lessons, an internship and practical activities that will be done at the Neurophysiology Unit of Bambino Gesù Children’s Hospital. The internship and the practical activity require the presence with the aim to learn the EEG methodologies of diagnostic through the supervision of a minimum of 100 diagnostic exams, comprehensive of wake and sleep and long video monitor sessions/EEG.

At the end of the Course the learners will be able to:

  • Identify the EEG physiological patterns of the wake and sleep moments from the newborn to the young-adult phases.
  • Identify the EEG pathological patterns, focal and/or generic, of the focal lesional pathologies and epilepsies
  • Identify the EEG pathological patterns of the metabolic, infectious, anorexia, severe and mild encephalopathies
  • Correctly identify the electroclincal patterns of the most common epilepsy crisis and syndromes.


The cost of the Course is 1.500,00 (+ € 130,00 for the certificate, € 32,00 for the stamps, and € 16,00 per year).

50 % of the fee must be paid at the registration and the remaining 50% within the deadline stated in the announcement.
