TEACH stands for Training and Education for Advanced Clinicians and HCPs and the goal is to bring young HCPs up-to-date with developments in this exciting field.

Aimed at young healthcare professionals aged 28-40, TEACH will cover topics such as monoclonal antibodies, inhibitory drugs and putting the patient at the centre of his or her own care - all within the context of personalised medicine.

The gathering will be held from 4-7 July in Cascais, Portugal, and, over the course of the four-day school, a 20-strong faculty of experts will oversee plenaries, group discussions and interactive role play sessions involving the +/- 80 HCPs enrolled on the course.

Registration is already open an there will be an ‘early bird registration’ option until May.
