Antibiotics are amongst the most commonly used drugs, and any physician, at one time or another, will prescribe them. However, in most medical curricula, the attention for antibiotic therapy is quite scarce. Therefore, the ESCMID Study Group for Antimicrobial stewardshiP (ESGAP) offers a workshop in antibiotic therapy, for the fourth time, in Madrid from February 7-9/2019. This will be organized in collaboration with the proposed European Study Group for Infections in Emergency Medicine, and will be provided by international experts in microbiology and infectious diseases. The practical organization is in hands of the University Medical Center Utrecht in The Netherlands.

In an intensive three-day program, clinical experts will cover the basics of antibiotic therapy, and will discuss the rationale behind the antibiotic treatment regimens of the most relevant infections for medical specialists. The course material will be further practiced with interactive questions. The course strives for maximum interaction, group size will therefore be limited to a maximum of 60 (two groups of 30).

We look forward to welcoming you in Madrid!
