Stroke Summer School
The ESO Summer School is organized each year by a team of stroke physicians in a European city, and is supported and endorsed by ESO.
During one week, stroke specialists from Europe provide their expert knowledge to young physicians with a major interest in cerebrovascular diseases. The application deadline is usually at the beginning of the year after having been announced on this website. Once the application deadline has passed, the local organizing committee selects the participants on the basis of:
- application (letter of motivation, CV, letter of support)
- current affiliation with a European stroke unit
- maximum 2 participants per country, one per stroke unit.
- If there are still places available, applicants from non-European countries will be considered.
The ESO Summer School usually bears costs of accommodation, meals, coffee breaks and the social programme for participants and speakers. Participants cover their travel expenses, the dinners outside the usual programme and any personal expenses during their stay including telephone and internet costs from the hotel. Accompanying persons are not permitted.
Future Summer Schools
The ESO Stroke Summer School is a flagship event for ESO and a prestigious educational meeting for stroke trainees throughout Europe. We are pleased to report that following the recent call to all ESO members, we received several high quality applications to host the ESO Stroke Summer School 2018. Three applications were judged to be of an excellent standard, following evaluation by the ESO Education Committee and approval by the ESO Executive.
Since all three bids were of such a high standard, we are delighted to be able to award the Summer School host locations for the next three years (2018-2020) as follows:
2018 Berlin, Germany
2019 Helsinki, Finland
2020 Caen, France
We are confident that these hosts will maintain the very high standard set by previous ESO Summer Schools.
