Rabat Center

Following the accreditation of the Center of Rabat as a training center of African neurologists, the Department of Neurology at the Mohamed V University hosted Dr. Mohamed Albakay from Mali Sept. 9, 2014, as the first African intern.

Albakay received a grant  from the World Federation of Neurology  of 12,000 Euros to cover the stay in Rabat, the accommodation, a return ticket Bamako-Casablanca and health insurance.

Following the agreement between the WFN and the Moroccan  Foundation Against  Neurological Diseases, the scholarship of Albakay will be managed by the foundation.

Albakay has already begun his training in electromyography in the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology of the Hà´spital des Specialtés, headed by Prof. Rida Ouazzani. During this stage, he also experienced the expertise of the team in the diagnosis of myopathies and peripheral neuropathies.

The second part of the course will take place in the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology of Mohammed-V Military Hospital, headed by Prof. Hamid Ouhabi. This department is well known for its expertise in EEG, video EEG and in the treatment of epilepsy.

Albakay may participate in the various multidisciplinary staffs organized by our department.

Furthermore, the Moroccan Society of Neurology decided to support his participation to the Maghrebin Congress of Neurology that will be held Nov. 13-15, 2014, in Agadir.
