Dear Young neurologists and trainees in Asia Pacific region. Join us to learn more, train well and improve patient care for our millions of patients with neurological disorders in Asia Pacific region. APAYNET is your association. Lets build a better and brighter future in neurology in Asia Pacific region.
Young neurologists in Asia Pacific region need good clinical training. Not all centers in Asia Pacific region have the facilities to train young neurologists adequately in their area of interest, so the trainee may have to spend time in another country. One of the's priorities is to help interested trainees to find a specialised training center in their subspeciality. The APAYNET also aims to provide funding for training abroad in the future. It is important that such training is recognised in the trainee's home country, which will depend on quality assurance and people not just having a holiday. Therefore any training abroad should be approved in advance to ensure it is worthwhile. The APAYNET will provide information about clinical training programmes and host centers on this website, to help trainess to select where to spend their precious time.
