After careful preparation, and with a view to “being different” from other paediatric conferences, the EAP Congress and MasterCourse has attained a very special reputation. This, despite the ever-increasing number of conferences in Paediatrics.
The conference will present a one-and-a-half-day workshop entitled MasterCourse in Paediatrics, which is based on most recent publications, promises to be an excellent event.
The MasterCourse will focus on nutrition from birth to adolescent and will take place 19-20 September, 2019.
The scientific chairmen, Prof. Berthold Koletzko and Prof. Jorge Amil Dias have prepared an excellent programme with renowned faculty members. The MasterCourse in Paediatrics will take place in relatively small break-out rooms with only limited seating capacity. I therefore recommend early registration.
The scientific committee of the congress has set up an interesting programme for both senior and junior doctors which covers in depth important clinical subjects.
Once again, we anticipate a significant scientific contribution from junior doctors and encourage them to submit abstracts. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters or oral presentations with lead authors of these abstracts automatically eligible for sending an application for a travel grant.(see eligible criteria)
Accepted abstracts will be published in the European Journal of Paediatrics and therefore, citable.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to Porto in September which is one of the most beautiful periods of the year. There is no better time to combine knowledge with pleasure!
