COVID-19 has proven challenging in the organisation of onsite courses in the past year. ESPGHAN remains dedicated to the realisation of our educational programme without compromising the health of our delegates. As the number of participants is a critical part in the planning and realisation of our schools, we encourage all interested HCPs to apply. If the situation does not allow for the responsible realisation of onsite participation, your application will be valid for virtual participation. Registration fees will be reimbursed or adapted accordingly.
