Paris 2018

The second IDEAL summer school will take place in Paris from 27th to 31st August 2018 in iLumens Simulation Platform and focused on hot topics in Infectious Diseases.

Through international small groups, students will have the opportunity to be immersed in a practical approach based on interactive sessions, clinical case solving, serious games, simulation games and roundtables.


Students give their opinion

The Summer school was an excellent way to integrate scientific knowledge with clinical practice.

I think I learnt more in this one week than during my whole year, we need a more practical approach in our everyday studies or we won’t be able to really understand the theoretical knowledge.

It is a unique experience to work with medical students from other countries and learn from them.

The Summer school is an opportunity to deepen knowledge, do simulations and practical activities which are often not available in my university. It is also an opportunity to get to know the level of medical knowledge of other countries and challenge yourself with other med students.
