5th ESGAP Antibiotics Course, September 15-17 2021
Antibiotics are amongst the most commonly used drugs, and any physician, at one time or another, will prescribe them. However, in most medical curricula, the attention for antibiotic therapy is quite scarce.
The ESCMID Study Group for Antibiotic StewarshiP (ESGAP) and the UMC Utrecht organize a yearly three-day training program in antibiotic therapy. This course is given by international experts in microbiology and infectious diseases. The main intended audience consists of residents in internal medicine, emergency medicine and clinical microbiology, but also other interested medical professionals are welcome to participate.
In an intensive three-day program, clinical experts will cover the basics of antibiotic therapy,and will discuss the rationale behind the antibiotic treatment regimens of the most relevant infections for medical specialists. The course material will be further practiced with interactive questions.The course strives for maximum interaction, therefore group size will be limited 40.
The next edition of this course will be held in the city of Utrecht, The Netherlands, September 15-17 2021.
