EPA Itinerant Courses

Though most EPA Courses are given during the European Congress of Psychiatry, many of them are also available to be organised as EPA Itinerant Courses in collaboration with National Psychiatric Association Members (NPAs). Requests for EPA Course organisation from other close EPA partners can also be considered.
Below is the available catalogue of EPA Itinerant Courses.

If your association or organisation is interested in organising one of them in your country, please contact the EPA Administrative Office for more information.
