About ESOR

The ASKLEPIOS project was created to serve professional development, meeting recognized needs in the context of continuing radiological education. Its concept is versatile and broad even to cover evolving topics in European and non-European destinations. Its programs include multi-disciplinary, organ-oriented, multi-modal and multidisciplinary advanced courses for senior residents, general radiologists and private radiology clinicians or allied specialists.

This educational program is conducted by renowned European and local speakers in an effort to open new opportunities for knowledge exchange and to improve scientific collaboration.

One of the great differentiators of ESOR courses is that it offers a combination of classes and case discussions where participants, divided into smaller groups, have the opportunity to see cases with teachers, making it much easier to ask questions and exchange of experiences.

It is important to remember that the classes will be taught in English and there will be no simultaneous translation service.
