Maghreb School

The Maghreb School aims to promote the training and education of paediatric endocrinologists in French–speaking North African countries. For five days, an international faculty of French-speaking teachers and 25 students cover selected topics in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes. The seminar features interactive lectures by the teachers, student case presentations, research project workshops and small-group meetings. The School is designed for doctors in training who have at least 3 years of experience in paediatrics; six months or more of experience in endocrinology; and who hope to develop a career with a major interest in paediatric endocrinology.

ESPE is pleased to announce that the 9th Maghreb School will take place this year in Sousse, Tunisia from 19-22 November 2019 .

The Maghreb School is supported by an educational grant from Novo Nordisk Health Care AG, Switzerland.
