EPA Itinerant Courses

Though most of the EPA Courses are given during the European Congress of Psychiatry, many of them are also available to be organised as Itinerant courses in collaboration with National Psychiatric Associations that are EPA members. In addition, requests for course organisation from other close EPA partners can also be considered.

Below is the catalogue of the EPA Itinerant Courses available. If your association/organisation is interested in organising one of them in your country, please contact the EPA Administrative Office for more information.
