Juniors Working Party
ESID Juniors Newsletter - April 2018
by Peter Olbrich
The ESID conference is right around the corner and we have already started to organize our Junior activities. In this newsletter I will give you a brief overview of what we have prepared for you!
1. ESID networking event
Frederico as the Junior representative from Portugal is currently looking for the best venue for this. We will probably have this event after the educational day and the welcoming ceremony. We will update you as soon as we have the place and time confirmed! Expect to meet new and old friends, drinks and music!
2. Educational day
This part of the ESID conference should not be missed! Eleonora as head of the educational WP has invited fantastic speakers and they will cover highly relevant topics! Please check out the ESID program for more details!
3. ESID Junior WP workshop “Expect the unexpected”
This event has received great feedback from all participants of the 2 editions we have had so far. The concept is to have 3 ESID Junior cases presented by Juniors. These cases include some tricky questions regarding diagnosis and management of the patients and these questions will be asked to members of our expert panel. At the same time the audience will be able to participate and answer the question with the ESID conference app.
We are very happy to have already confirmed terrific experts. In Lisbon are Stephan Ehl (CCI, Germany) and Luigi Notarangelo (NIH, USA) will be on board and the third member of the panel will be announced soon. Our moderator of the session is going to be the amazing Elie Haddad (Montreal, Canada).
As said we will need 3 Junior cases for presentation (5-7 minutes). For this year we have managed to waive the conference inscription fees! So stay tuned as we will send out the invitation to send us your very best mystery cases in the next few weeks!
4. ESID Talent Award
Every two years we grant this Award to a very talented Junior. The aim is to give recent ESID fellowship award winners the opportunity to showcase the most important results of their work and acknowledge this with a number of very interesting benefits like waived registration, accommodation during the meeting, invitation to the faculty dinner,….! Don’t miss the opportunity to put forward your application. Check out here the details for the ESID talent Award 2018.
5. ESID online education
Don’t forget to go through the content of our platform as most of it is of high interest for people starting in the PID field. We have interactive cases, uploaded presentations from the workshops and educational day as well as links to some very nice resources on YouTube that have been checked and approved by the educational committee! We would be also very happy to get your feedback and suggestions for improvement as this tool is mainly meant to serve your needs!!!
As usual I don’t want to close this newsletter without inviting you to participate actively in the ESID Junior WP!!! There are many things we are working on and would be very happy to have your help and input. On the other hand we are always looking for new ideas and projects to be developed in order to get the best education, networking and career opportunities for our members! Get in touch!
We are looking forward to hear from you and see you ALL in Lisbon 2018!!!
With my best wishes,
