ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology Virtual

30 June-2 July 2021

ECNP took the decision to go virtual with the ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology in June 2021. This means that there was no meeting in Oxford, and all content was delivered online via required pre-recorded lectures from Friday 25 June to Tuesday 29 June 2021 and live sessions with faculty and peers from Wednesday 30 June to Friday 2 July 2021.

The ECNP School of Neuropsychopharmacology offers a select number of participants an interactive 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 the basis of their career potential. A maximum of 50 early career psychiatrists were accepted.
