Education Working Party
ESID Education WP - Newsletter February 2023
by Clara Franco Jarava
Dear ESID Members,
First of all, I want to thank you for trusting me to lead the Education for the next four years. As soon as I acquired my new role, we started working on several initiatives. Some of them I can already reveal, some others might have to wait for future newsletters... We have built a new steering committee who already started working in reviewing the applications for the ESID fellowships. We have closed the call for ESID Summer School 2023 with more than 100 applications, and we therefore plan to organize other educational activities within this year.
The Education Working Party steering committee is made up of the following professionals: Despina Moshous, Emma Morris, Manfred Hönig, Marta Rizzi, Peter Olbrich, Sandra Ammann and Lisa Ott de Bruin. Together, we aim to offer educational opportunities regarding PID to anyone starting in the field, to enthuse, inform and encourage the next generation of leaders in PID practice and research throughout Europe. To meet such an ambitious goal, we have defined the following two objectives for the next four years:
- To ensure an easy and perdurable access to all –existing and upcoming - ESID educational content (videos, grand rounds, sessions, podcasts, clinical guidelines, laboratory protocols....).
- To promote the organization of educational activities that raise the awareness of PID in Europe.
We are currently working on both of them and all the information in regard to new activities will be made available at ESID website and mailshots. Please make sure you receive ESID Administrative Office emails to be the first to receive upcoming news.
Finally, we want to hear your voice and know your educational needs. I therefore invite you to send your suggestions directly to us at .
Receive my best wishes.
