Summer School learning objectives
After the Summer School, participants should:
• Have a complete overview of paediatric nutritional sciences
• Have up to date practical knowledge about appropriate nutrition for healthy infants and children and patients with nutritional disorders
• Be able to read critically and discuss scientific literature
• Be familiar with emerging trends in paediatric nutrition
• Understand the design of clinical trials and studies, including basic statistical approaches
Cost & Registration
The registration fee for the Summer School is € 200 (single room)/ 300 double room) and includes
• three meals per day
• course materials
• social programme including a trip to Alberobello and surrounding area
The Summer School will include a mixture of plenary sessions and workshops in small groups in which participants will practice and develop their knowledge in nutritional sciences as well as their evidence-based medicine knowledge and skills. Each student will attend four workshops during the course. Most plenary topics are allocated 45 minutes; 35 minutes for a lecture and 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
Students will also have the opportunity to present their research (or a difficult clinical case) to fellow students and Faculty in small groups, and to receive constructive feedback on the content and delivery of their presentation.
Informal social events will encourage free discussion and the establishment of ongoing links between Faculty and students, and between participants themselves. The small number of participants (maximum 45) and relatively large number of faculty allows ample room to meet, discuss clinical and science issues and interact in a fantastic, academically inspiring setting.
