Eligibility Criteria




The HIV Summer School results from the merger of our two previous educational courses – the Advanced HIV Course and the European Clinical Research Course (ECReCo).


This 5-day residential course is designed for clinicians involved in HIV management who wish to deepen their knowledge about all aspects of HIV medicine and research methodology. The course is delivered by an experienced faculty of key opinion leaders in the fields of HIV clinical care and research. Teaching is based around a combination of plenary sessions, which provide updates on the recent advances in HIV clinical science and a general introduction to clinical research methodology, and interactive small working groups led by faculty members.


For the latter, participants opt to enroll either for Module A (research methodology), which provides an opportunity to delve more deeply into the complexities of developing a research proposal, or Module B (clinical care) which provides extensive opportunities to build knowledge on specific clinical aspects of antiretroviral therapy/resistance, HIV prevention, HIV co-infections, opportunistic infections and co-morbidities. 

A maximum of 70 participants will be accepted.

Applicants must be physicians or clinical scientists working in infectious diseases and/or HIV. They will be selected on the basis of an online application form demonstrating close involvement in the HIV field, a CV and a letter of support from their current Head of Department. Applicants must demonstrate a good command of English. Applicants enrolling on Module A must also demonstrate a clear interest in and commitment to undertaking clinical research.


A moderate fee of EUR 300 is charged which will cover registration and accommodation (payment is due on confirmation of a place on the course). A limited number of scholarships are available to applicants from low-and middle-income countries.
