ECNP Schools

ECNP School logoThe ECNP Schools were established to encourage excellence in clinical neuropsychopharmacology in junior practitioners and to contribute to the continuing improvement of the field’s high standards of practice.

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 junior psychiatrists are accepted and their accommodation costs are covered by ECNP.

We currently have two ECNP Schools that are annually held:

  1. The ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology
    Focused on all aspects of neuropsychopharmacology: from its fundamentals to the use of medications in individual indications, good clinical practice and optimal treatment and algorithms.
    Target group: junior psychiatrists
    The next ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology will take place on 30 June - 5 July 2019 in Oxford, United Kingdom.

Experiences from previous ECNP Schools:

Poster session"It was an amazing experience, we learned so many new things, shared so many experiences, brainstormed with each other, made new friends. We'll have great memories for a long time."
