EACS Educational and Training

Programme

The EACS offers different educational and

training opportunities to HIV physicians and

investigators:

• The EACS HIV Summer School is a 5-day

residential course designed for clinicians

experienced in HIV management who

want an update on the current issues

in all aspects of HIV Medicine and

clinical research. It is delivered by an

experienced faculty. The course consists

of updates on the recent advances

in current issues in HIV diagnosis,

management and prevention together

with core knowledge of medical statistics

and clinical research methodology.

This course is accredited by the European

Accreditation Council for ContinuingMedical

Education (EACCME),

www.uems.eu ,

and provides CME credits for medical

specialists.

• The EACS Medical Exchange Programme

is based on a clinical or research project

relevant in the field of HIV/co-infections.

It runs over a period of four to twelve

months in a selected EACS clinical centre

in Europe. Funding is allocated according

to the duration of the project. Fellowship

recipients are expected to present their

work at a subsequent EACS Conference.

In 2017, EACS will launch a new course:

• The “PrEp Online Course“ is aimed

at clinicians and community based

organizations from HIV high-incidence

countries in the European Region,

predominantly Eastern Europe

and Central Asia. The course will

provide participants with an in-depth

understanding of the pre-exposure

prophylaxis as part of a wider HIV

prevention strategy according to

international guidelines (EACS & WHO).
