Continuum is an AAN postgraduate program. This highly successful educational program is made available to societies for 45 countries, for the use of Continuum user groups, through a collaboration of the AAN and WFN.
The program is delivered by hard copies or electronically. WFN coordinators arrange for neurologists to meet and discuss the content of these publications.
The WFN provides certification upon completion of courses.
The WFN has biennial World Congresses. These provide many educational activities and the WFN Teaching Courses are an important aspect.
The spectrum ranges from free teaching courses, trainee and advanced level courses, hands-on courses and also includes topics such as advocacy, training and education.
The WFN participates jointly with the EAN and other societies in yearly teaching courses in Africa. Topics are chosen by the participants and the distribution of knowledge as well as the enthusiasm is enormous.
The WFN Teaching Centers fulfil the mission to train neurologists in local regions.
To qualify as a WFN Teaching Center, a center has to undergo an evaluation, a visit of the education committee and a detailed description of its activities.
At present, Rabat, Cairo, Dakar and Mexico have WFN teaching Centers. Trainees are supported by the WFN in Fellowship and training programs at these Teaching Centers.
