We collected and analyzed the questionnaires from the participants in the annual EEG hands-on (5 times) and the regional EEG seminar (6 times). The board-certified neurologists among participants in the regional EEG seminar were always more than those in the annual EEG hands-on. Participants in the regional EEG seminar were more involved in EEGs than those in the annual EEG hands-on. The highly satisfactory lectures in the annual EEG hands-on were gnormal EEG" and those in the regional EEG seminar were gEEG of epilepsy". The highly requested lectures in the annual EEG hands-on were ghow to read EEG" and those in the regional EEG seminar were gEEG of epilepsy". By taking the needs of the participants into account, we only could provide more efficient teaching seminars to improve EEG reading skills of neurologists.
