About The Programs
The J. Kiffin Penry Pediatric Epilepsy Programs are a unique series of educational programs for physicians and health care providers who treat epilepsy in the pediatric population. The programs are an outgrowth of the Epilepsy MiniFellowship programs and were developed in response to a demand for a similar program for neurologists who treat this special population.
Since their inception the programs quickly became recognized for their educational impact, achieved by combining lectures from prominent speakers with small group sessions, case presentations and discussions, and close interaction among the faculty and fellow participants.
The programs are held at
Graylyn International Conference Center of Wake Forest University, whose elegant surroundings and distraction free environment are uniquely suited to these programs. The programs are well known for their intensive nature, with lectures and case presentations from morning until afternoon, followed by evening case sessions and discussions after dinner.
The curriculum and course content are determined by an Advisory Board that includes recognized experts and opinion leaders in the field of pediatric epilepsy. For more on the history of the programs, visit the Mission and History page.
