Friday and Saturday October 13-14th 2017, University of Basel, Switzerland

6th European MD-PhD conference and Swiss MD-PhD Conference




Register now for the upcoming Meeting!

The conference is a joint event of the Swiss MD-PhD Association (SMPA) and the European MD-PhD Association (EMPA). This year, we will focus on “Ageing”. As a truly translational topic, it is important for the research of most of us and as well of general interest. SMPA invites to network, foster collaborations and get career advice during this annual gathering, including four inspirational keynote lectures and presentations and special sessions on concerns related to the MD-PhD career pathway. We will also have a science slam to practice the casual communication of scientific results.


 Abstracts: All students are welcome to present an abstract. The committee will decide after acceptance if the abstract will be presented as a poster, in the science slam or as a student presentation.


Social program: Our flying dinner on Friday offers the ideal atmosphere to socialize with physician scientists from all over Europe. Don’t miss our informative and entertaining medical history Basel city tour on Thursday evening.


Accommodation: The Basel Youth Hostel is one of the most beautiful in Switzerland. It’s location in one of Basel’s most attractive neighborhoods emphasizes it’s price winning architecture and design. Breakfast and the Basel Mobility Ticket (free public transportation) are included in the price.
