Home/ Working Parties/ Juniors Working Party/ Events/ ESID Summer School 2022 - New Applications Now Received

Exciting opportunity for ESID Juniors!

Dear ESID junior members,

Hopefully, we can finally have a face to face ESID Summer School this year, this is if the pandemic situation allows us to travel abroad. The Summer School will take place in Greece, close to Athens, from May 5 to 8, 2022.

Most of the applicants who had been selected for the cancelled 2020 edition have confirmed their presence in this year’s Summer School. However, we have some available places. Therefore, if you are interested to participate in this unique educational activity, you may now apply until February 28th.

We are aware that this pandemic situation was very frustrating for ESID juniors who missed a lot of networking opportunities within the society. Unfortunately, we will probably not be able to admit all candidates who may apply now. Therefore, we will provide an online based case discussion activity for those who may not be selected and who wish to interact virtually with faculty members and other Juniors.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Despina Moshous, (Education Working Party Chair )and Clara Franco (ESID Junior Working Party Chair)

When
May 5-8, 2022

Where

February 28, 2022.
Applicants will be notified about the outcome of their applications on March 14th.

Accelerate Your Career 
If you are inspired by a career in the field of primary immunodeficiencies, whether in the clinic, the lab, or a combination, this will be an excellent opportunity to update your knowledge, hear about the latest diagnostic tools, and learn from leaders in the field who see and manage patients with the whole spectrum of primary immunodeficiency, while also networking and socialising with your colleagues.

The detailed 2022 Summer School programme will be finalized at a later stage and all ESID junior members will receive regular emails with updates and more detailed information via email and this webpage.
