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 was held in Oxford, United Kingdom, on 30 June - 5 July 2019.

Participants were 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 were accepted and their accommodation costs were covered by ECNP.
