Abstract

To investigate the need for pre- and post-graduate education for neurologists, the subcommittee of the Japanese Society of Neurology for education performed a questionnaire-based survey in 80 medical universities throughout Japan. The response rate to the questionnaire was 82.5%. Textbooks for lectures for medical students were used in only 22.7% of those universities. If the Japanese Society of Neurology (JSN) made a standard text, 77.8% of universities would like to use it. Most of the training programs for residents were compatible with the minimum requirements of the JSN. Just 66.7% of those training programs were completed in their own institute, and 77.3% of universities required help from the JSN.
