The MUSC Epilepsy Boot Camp is a two-day intense, comprehensive epilepsy course for health care providers. The topics on day one will begin with essential facts about seizures, and will progress through seizure types, the impact of epilepsy, and special needs of particular patient groups. The first day will continue with a thorough introduction to state of the art diagnostic options. The second day will be a full review of current treatment options, pharmacologic treatment, neurostimulation and special diets for epilepsy. In the afternoon, more advanced topics such as epilepsy surgeries and functional brain-mapping will be reviewed. Breakout sessions will include Seizure first aid (the first responder), epilepsy genetics, nonepileptic events (pseudoseizures) and early intervention for refractory epilepsy.
