10 ISSM Scholarships available to the ESSM School of Sexual Medicine (16 – 25 November 2018, Budapest, Hungary)
The ISSM hereby has the pleasure to announce ISSM scholarships to attend the ESSM School of Sexual Medicine.
The ESSM School of Sexual Medicine was a joint venture established by the European Society for Sexual Medicine and the European Federation of Sexology. The first “Oxford Course” was run in 2007. As in previous years, this year, the ESSM will deliver a learning curriculum based upon the UEMS Joint Committee for Sexual Medicine syllabus and the EFS/ESSM Syllabus of Clinical Sexology.
The programme is intended for clinicians seeking to acquire the knowledge and skills essential for practice in Sexual Medicine and Clinical Sexology. Medically-qualified participants should find the programme helpful when preparing for the Fellowship of the European Committee of Sexual Medicine examination. So far, over one hundred and fifty participants from Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Middle East and the Americas have taken part in the school programme; they include specialists in andrology, endocrinology, family medicine, gynaecology, internal medicine, psychiatry, urology, surgery, oncology and psychology. Participants will have the opportunity to learn the essentials of sexuality in both men and women that are necessary for effective clinical practice, even for those whose usual practice is exclusively with one gender.
