TAE Trainees Day 2017

22 April 2017, 13:15-16:45, Foyer E

In 2017, ESCMID will again hold the TAE Trainees Day. This format offers great chances for young professionals to learn about various options in their lives, to think about possibilities that never crossed their minds before, and to get inspiration from experts who were once in the same position at the crossroads of their career path. At the same time, this will be a perfect opportunity to build stronger links between senior experts and future professionals.

A main and popular part of the session is the round tables, which give younger professionals the chance to talk to experts in an informal setting. Participants can sign up for the expert table of their choice to talk about their career and will be able to submit optional questions that the moderator will receive before the session.
