If you have a dietitian, nurse, psychologist or social worker in your team who is interested in diabetes research or who would want to implement their own science ideas, then they should look to attend the ISPAD Science School for Healthcare Professionals. During the workshop, running over 3 days, we will discuss and improve their scientific background, knowledge in research methodology, data analysis and abstract writing together with 15 students and science experienced faculties from all around the world.

Student places will be limited to 15 and one applicant per hospital/centre. Applications will be assessed by the Science School Lead Conveners. Accommodation, meals and educational materials will be provided to the delegates during the Science School. Economy travel to attend the Science School will also be arranged by ISPAD.
