|Clinical Specialists Certified by JES|
JES has certified the eligible members as clinical specialists of epilepsy since 1999, once they fulfill the qualification conditions and pass the examination (written- and oral part) that is currently done once a year in summer.
It is now officially approved by the Japanese Board of Medical Specialties ( http://www.japan-senmon-i.jp/index.html. )
Out of about 3010 JES members, a total of 691 members have been certified as clinical specialists of epilepsy until 2018. Their major fields are pediatric neurology (n=381), neuropsychiatry (n=101), neurosurgery (n=137) and neurology (n=72)
