Our goal is to provide exceptional training and highest quality clinical practical skills for the next generation of physicians, advocates and leaders caring for patients affected with epilepsy.

For healthcare professionals, the Ottawa Hospital and CHEO are both positioned as some of the largest teaching hospitals in Canada and the main training sites for over 200 medical students and over 2,000 residents.

I had the opportunity to hone my EEG reading skills with three excellent supervisors, who each demonstrated unique reading styles and provided individual feedback in a positive environment. Additionally, I was exposed to a wide range of EEG types including neurocritical care, neurosurgical patients, epilepsy monitoring unit, and routine outpatients.
