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.

IIC 2024 will be the 21st edition of the course, and will be held at St Catherine's College, Oxford. We look forward to welcoming old and new friends and colleagues.


Please see the separate pages on the website for registration and bursary information.
