Summer School

The IDEAL summer school offers an advanced Infectious Diseases course with a global health perspective for selected European undergraduate students. It is held each year at the end of August and for now, focuses on the topic of emergencies in Infectious Diseases. Courses are given in English by an international team of teachers from the six partner institutions. Students benefit from the involvement of Ugandan academic physicians from university hospitals in Gulu and Nsambya who share their unique field-experience of Infectious Diseases. Lectures are based on a practical approach with simulation games, clinical cases and roundtables. This interactive approach favors exchanges of practices and experiences among students and teachers.
