About us


The main aim of ESO is the improvement and optimisation of stroke management by continuing education. Medical professionals can easily obtain information on the latest developments in this treatment area by visiting the ESO Virtual Stroke University.

The ESO Virtual Stroke University seeks to:

  • Present important lectures from major international meetings
  • Create a forum for an international audience of experts
  • Present the best training and educational support for stroke physicians and health providers

The ESO virtual symposia feature audio recordings synchronised with full screen slides. Visitors can therefore follow the slides exactly as they were presented at the meeting, while watching and listening to the speaker.

The lectures were recorded at different international stroke conferences, sponsored by ESO.
