ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology

27 June-2 July 2021, Oxford, United Kingdom

Following the cancellation of the 2020 ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology due to the corona crisis situation across Europe, we present information about the 2021 School.

The ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology offers a select number of participants a week-long programme of intensive training in all aspects of neuropsychopharmacology: from its fundamentals to the use of medications in individual indications, good clinical practice and optimal treatment and algorithms. The School will be held from 27 June -2 July 2021 in Oxford, United Kingdom.

Participants are selected by the chair of the school, with two to three potential candidates per country, on the basis of their career potential. A maximum of 50 early career psychiatrists will be accepted and their accommodation costs are covered by ECNP.
