EADV considers education to be the main foundation for continuing professional development in dermatology and venereology.

The aim of the EADV School Committee is to raise the standards of dermatology and venereology, in addition to promoting a sense of community and encouraging collaboration within its network. The EADV provides high quality theoretical and practical trainings with an emphasis on the latest best practices to benefit patients and physicians alike.


The EADV face-to-face activities support continuing medical education. EADV constantly updates its schedule of classroom and practical courses, led by some of the leading experts in dermatology and venereology.


The EADV online activities support continuing medical education. EADV offers regularly updated online courses, webcasts and other on-demand resources designed by leading experts in dermatology and venereology. 


The EADV Podcast features in-depth discussions on the latest developments in dermatology and venereology, and interviews with notable doctors, professors and researchers. 


The EADV Leadership Development Programme is a training programme, specifically designed for EADV members, to acquire the skills that differentiate a successful leader. 

How to organise a course

For more than ten years, the EADV has been organising courses all over Europe for residents and specialists in dermatology and venereology. We are always interested to find new organisers who would like to contribute to such a rewarding programme.

Applications should be submitted before 31 January of the year prior to the course (e.g. for a course taking place in 2025, the application form and programme should be submitted by 31 January, 2024). 
Note, however, that even in the case of a timely application, we cannot guarantee that new course proposals will be selected for organisation the following year due to the high number of proposals we have received in recent years. They will be evaluated by the EADV School Committee in 2nd quarter and selected according the current educational needs and priorities.
Course chairs should expect feedback to their proposal before the end of that same year.
