FACE-TO-FACE LEARNING FAQs

 

Should I apply for a Resident course or a Specialist course?

Resident courses are open to all residents/trainees in Dermatology. If you have obtained a Specialist diploma in Dermatology and are still training as a PhD student or are currently doing a residency in another country, you cannot apply to Resident courses. Specialist courses are open to Specialists in Dermatology only; residents cannot apply (even if you have an interest in the topic of a Specialist course). In addition to Resident and Specialist courses, the EADV offers a number of combined courses that are open to both residents and specialists. Doctors who wish to register for these types of courses must do so in the dedicated sections corresponding to their status.

I am currently a resident but I will likely obtain my specialist diploma just before the Resident course(s) that I would like to attend. What can I do?

Considering the delay between the application deadline and the course itself, you are allowed to apply for that course as long as you are not a Specialist when you are sending us your application and documents.

May I apply for a Resident or a Specialist course if I am not from/working in a European country?

Yes.

May I apply for several courses?

Yes.

I am not an EADV member; may I apply for a course?

I am currently in process to become an EADV member, should I inform you about it?

Participants of our Specialist courses will receive catering during the whole course, one social event, a certificate of attendance, material for practical sessions (if needed), educational material on a USB stick. Specialists will not receive the Educational Grant but instead will receive CME points. Specialists must arrange and pay for their own accommodation.

What happens if I wish to cancel my participation to a Specialist course?

In case of any cancellation, the EADV will automatically deduct 50 euros from the refund.
