Update 11/1: Due to covid-19 the course has been postponed to 15-17 September. Registered participants will receive more details by mail.


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 every other year. The practical organization of this training is in the hands of the University Medical Center Utrecht.

In an intensive three-day program, clinical experts 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 – the number of participants will therefore be limited to a maximum of 40.

The fifth edition of the course will be given, in Utrecht, The Netherlands, September 15th-17th, 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you at one of the ESGAP courses,

Dr Miquel Ekkelenkamp, clinical microbiologist UMC Utrecht
