EUROPEAN SOCIETY FOR NEONATOLOGY COURSE

The aim of the courses is to underpin key areas of practice within the Neonatal Curriculum.
ESN courses will be organized in 3-year teaching cycles for neonatal trainees organised by ESN, each cycle will consist of 6 modules.

A total of 2 modules will be organized each year, and each module will run 4 workshops.
The workshops will be facilitated by a panel of international experts in the field and will focus on the application of research based evidence into clinical practice, flanked by plenary talks with ample time for discussion and debate.
The courses will be accompanied by access to the wide range of topics video recorded from the first course (2006-2008).

These ESN Courses will run alongside and complement the planned internet-based virtual learning environment for neonatal trainees, which will be available later in the year.
