ESO Stroke Summer School

 

The ESO Stroke Summer School is a flagship event for ESO and a prestigious educational meeting for stroke trainees throughout Europe.
It is organised each year by a team of stroke physicians in an European city.  During one week, stroke specialists from Europe provide their expert knowledge to young physicians with a major interest in cerebrovascular diseases.

Please note that the ESO Summer School is on application only and participation is limited.
