Vaccinology

duration 1 week
credits 3 ECTS
fee EUR 400

The Center for the Evaluation of Vaccination organizes in 2015 the seventh edition of the Summer School on Vaccinology for students. This training course focuses on vaccines, infectious diseases, immunization programmes and many other aspects of immunization, such as communication and vaccine safety. The overall aim is to improve the current knowledge and skills related to vaccines for (para) medical students, thus closing a gap in many curricula.

A maximum of forty participants is allowed and the audience is balanced for gender and nationality. Experts in the field are coming from all over Europe to give lectures. There are ex cathedra sessions, but also hands-on workshops on the administration of vaccines, workshops on communication skills and a group task that is presented at the end of the course.

The social programme is organised with the help of an enthusiastic group of Antwerp medical students from EMSA (European Medical Students Association). They guide you around the bustling city of Antwerp and organize touristic and social activities.
