The course aims to offer an additional course to the current curricula of (para) medical students regarding all aspects of vaccinology. Priority for participation is offered to students of the WHO-European region.
Scholarships are available for undergraduate students from the WHO-European region. The fee includes breakfast, lunch and dinner on course days, accommodation during 9 nights and days, local transport, course materials and part of the social & cultural programme. ESPID members benefit a reduction of the participation fee.
Participants will be admitted according to the date of registration and ensuring a balance in terms of regions and gender. Acceptance and payment methods will be notified by the summer school secretariat and registration will be confirmed after we received your payment of the program fee. In case you need an invitation letter for your visa, please inform us.
Social programme organised by EMSA
A summer course is not complete without a social programme! We, a group of students from the Antwerp European Medical Students Association (EMSA-Antwerpen), will take care of that.
During the weekdays and weekend, we will arrange a wide variety of dinners and activities to give you more than a glimpse of Antwerp and the rest of Belgium. Visits to museums, exhibitions or historical places can be arranged and we will be very happy to answer all your practical questions about these kind of things.
The social and cultural programme is optional and free!
