TAE Trainees Day 2019

In 2019, ESCMID will again hold the popular TAE Trainees Day. This session offers a great platform for young professionals to speak to renowned experts in the fields of CM and ID. Participants can learn more about opportunities available to them to further their career and to get inspiration from experts who were once also at the beginning of their career paths. It is also the perfect opportunity to build stronger links between senior experts and future professionals.

A popular part of the Trainees Day is the round-table session, which gives younger professionals the chance to talk directly to experts in an informal setting.
