Summer School in Geriatric Psychiatry


The EAGP is pleased to announce the fifth “Summer School in Geriatric Psychiatry”, a 3-day course in geriatric psychiatry for junior geriatric psychiatrists. 

This course will provide a forum for bringing together budding European geriatric psychiatrists with academic or institutional potential and favour networking for future co-operation across Europe. 

The attendees will improve their knowledge in old age psychiatry and share experiences about mental health programs and organizations. 

The course will feature workshops, group discussions, and state of the art lectures by European experts in the field of geriatric psychiatry. The participants will be encouraged to make their own contributions and present their papers/research. 


Who will be the attendees? 

The course will have up to 20 slots for junior geriatric psychiatrists from all over Europe. 

The interested junior geriatric psychiatrist is usually in their 2nd or 3rd year of general psychiatry training (depending on the national curriculum); being promoted by an old age faculty or an EAGP member is an asset. However, given the limited space, attendees will be selected on a first-come-first-serve basis. 



Prilly/ Lausanne, Switzerland, in one of Europe’s oldest old-age psychiatry services 

The address of the training place is: Route de Cery 60, 1008 Prilly, Switzerland.



From 23rd August to 26th August 2023
