The transmission of theoretical knowledge is based on self-directed learning using dedicated open source e-learning resources that provide the core knowledge requested at the undergraduate level. These resources include 5-8 min videos or power points focusing on key points to be remembered in each relevant topic.


The infectious diseases training course is based on hands-on training methods (case-based learning, simulation, serious games, team-based sessions, working groups with presentations, bedside teaching, etc) allowing the development of new skills among students, especially case-based discussions, team-work and communication skills.


It is delivered to groups of 20-30 volunteer undergraduate or postgraduate medical students according the partner institution. Partner institutions officially recognize the course as a substitute of/or an addition to regular curriculum.
