Undergraduate Achievement Award

The ESPE Undergraduate Achievement Award aims to attract early-career scientists and clinicians into paediatric endocrinology at the undergraduate level by recognising high achievement in the field.  Given the increasing emphasis on specialisation at an earlier stage in career development, there is a need to increase exposure to paediatric endocrinology during the early formative years.


APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED
