The course will be held over 5 days (arrival required on 23rd February and departure on 29th February) and include interactive lectures by experienced ESPE members, with the aim of covering all main topics in paediatric endocrinology. These lectures will be supplemented by small group sessions discussing teachers’ cases; and case presentations by the students.

The course also includes an introduction into clinical research with presentation by students of research proposals and projects in small groups, and presentation of selected work to the plenum.
