The European Association of Young Neurologists and Trainees (EAYNT) is an independent organization representing junior European neurologists. Our major aim is to advocate the interests of young neurologists in major bodies in Europe and worldwide. In addition, we promote European training exchange, and endeavor to improve European national core curricula by studying the differences in medical specialization, the disparities in working conditions, and the level of neurological education throughout Europe. We organize regular meetings at congresses and disseminate information relevant to young neurologists (e.g. bursaries and fellowships). We also promote and co-organize teaching courses and summer schools. EAYNT offers travel grants for its members. This summary is to provide information on the activities of EAYNT in 2011.
