We are committed to train and involve new and young ESCMID members in the ESCMID guidelines programme, to ensure, through their essential support, efficient and relevant production of guidance, fit to the increasingly important global role of ESCMID in the field of infectious diseases, clinical microbiology and infection control.

Online course

We provide access to the online McMaster/Cochrane GRADE Online Learning Modules which are a useful resource for developing guidelines and performing systematic reviews. Watching the modules is highly recommended for all ESCMID guidelines' projects panel members (including members of other societies and patients representatives).

Onsite course

The ESCMID Guidelines Subcommitee organises a yearly onsite training course, consisting of both interactive lectures and practical exercises that covers all steps of guidelines production, with a main focus on systematic reviews, meta-analyses and the GRADE approach. 

The course is free of charge, but participants will need to commit formally to be available in the 24 months following course attendance, in future ESCMID guidelines development projects and assist the drafting groups in performing systematic reviews (abstract screening, full text screening and data extraction) for ESCMID guidelines projects. 

Application for European Continuing Medical Education (CME) accreditation through the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) will be submitted.
