Intensive Course on Tropical Paediatrics and International Child Health

Preliminary Programme to be announced
Preliminary Schedule to be annouced


The next Intensive Course is going to take place in Gießen from January 27th until February 1st on Schloß Rauischholzhausen. Again the number of participants will be limited to 50 in order to ensure an intensive and practical learning experience. For the past couple of years we have been able to recruit participants from a variety of countries with lower resources which has provided the course with first-hand insight and experience from the field. Our international colleagues have contributed to a thourough medical knowledge exchange by sharing and discussing their work experience with our European students.

We would like to call out to all GTP-members to step forward if they would like to nominate a specific medical professional from abroad as future student or speaker of our course. We appreciate receiving CVs and a personal statement about how this international colleague could contribute to our course, what her or his motivation is and how she or he is planning to apply the newly gained knowledge in his/her home country.
