SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM


Celebrating 10 Years
with a New Scientific Program Structure
Designed to Facilitate Education Across Specialties


PRELIMINARY TOPICS AND CONFIRMED SPEAKERS RELEASED

EIP are excited to announce a new program structure for the 10th edition of EIP, one designed to focus on what matters most to pediatricians, built with their day-to-day needs in mind.

Through feedback from EIP’s members it has become clear that everyday pediatric practice has becomes more specialised in recent years. The pediatrician is now expected to have a far deeper understand of the very latest developments in the main specialties.

The 2018 program has been designed with this development at its core to provide participants with a practical take on the research happening in the specialties while highlighting its relevance to the general practitioner. 

The program covers the most hot topics and developments across 9 specialties of pediatrics, making use of 5 different session types on each track (One day / one Hall for Each Specialty). This year we are are focusing on the following specialties:
