Invitation to apply for hosting ISPAD Science School for Physicians
Supporting researchers in clinical and basic science focusing on type 1 and type 2 diabetes affecting children and young people, is fundamentally important. ISPAD offers an annual research training course in this field for young physicians. This program is aimed at enhancing trainees’ performance of research in pediatric diabetes in order to advance care, find cures, and offer prevention for youth affected by diabetes worldwide. The course will enable attendees to enhance their knowledge in the principles of research methodology, including basic/laboratory and clinical/translational approaches used in diabetes-related research. Interaction with world leaders in the field and colleagues around the globe usually create lifelong collaboration.
These Science Schools for Physicians are held independently of the Annual Conferences and in different venues.
Traditionally, the Board has selected the organization and sponsorship for these prestigious schools, but from 2017 onwards we would like to invite those members, who are interested in organizing the school in collaboration with ISPAD to submit their application.
Deadline for applications to host ISPAD Science School for Physicians in 2017 is July 15, 2016.
