Young stroke physicians and neuroradiologists with a strong interest in cerebrovascular diseases are eligible. Applicants should currently be in training in an Asian teaching hospital that treats acute stroke patients. The organizing committee will select 50 interventional neuroradiologists and 50 young stroke physicians based on their country of origin and the expected benefit to the individual and to his/her stroke unit and country. Since the main aim of the course is to enhance interdisciplinary stroke management, pairs of neuroradiologists and stroke physicians from the same institution will be given preference. If there are places available, applications from non-Asian countries and single applicants may be considered by the organizers. The final decision on the acceptance of participants rests with the local organization committee.
