Course Content

Hot Topics In Infection And Immunity In Children – The ESPID-Oxford Course is a residential training course covering topics in paediatric infection for paediatric infectious disease trainees and trainers, and for all those who manage children with infections. The aim of this course is to provide basic information and updates in key areas of paediatric infectious disease to both trainees and senior specialists.

Delegates are actively encouraged to participate in the interactive sessions to provide their knowledge and comments about the topics under review. All sessions are plenary.

For 2021, exceptionally, the course is being held as an intensive, one-day, virtual event. 



Sessions include:

  • Lectures with opportunity for questions at the end of every presentation
  • Case Rounds - interactive sessions with a panel, every day after lunch
  • Debate

We are hoping and planning to get back to the usual collegiate style of meeting for 2022 – we'll miss seeing you all in Oxford and having the opportunity to network in person at the Course Dinner!

Historically the course has been accredited for CPD by the RCPCH and we are applying for accreditation for 2021.
