EBN Online Pre-Congress Courses

At the European Academy of Paediatric Societies' Congress (EAPS 2020), Virtual Congress

Are you interested to learn about (non-invasive) haemodynamic monitoring technologies and discuss their use to provide individualised, pathophysiology-based management in neonatal care? Or would you like to expand your knowledge on optimal drug therapy in newborns and children?

The European Board of Neonatology (EBN) offers pre-congress course at the virtual European Academy of Paediatric Societies' Congress (EAPS 2020) on 14 and 15 October 2020.

For the EBN pre-congress courses leading international experts in their respective fields join forces to provide you with the latest knowledge on research and its application in an interactive environment.

  • Eligibility

    EBN teaching courses are open to any medical professional who supports the aims of the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR).

    Participants of the EBN courses do not need to register for the entire EAPS Congress. Please note that registration for the EBN courses alone does not constitute a registration for EAPS 2020.
