ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology

The ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology offered 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.

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

The school took place in Oxford, United Kingdom on 24-29 June 2018, Oxford, United Kingdom.
