The 3 days EAGP Refresher's course 2024 will take place on Thursday 26th, Friday 27th, and Saturday 28th of September 2024, in Leuven, Belgium. Get ready for an invigorating experience you won’t want to miss! Are you an experienced geriatric psychiatrist seeking fresh insights and eager to connect with a tight-knit community of peers? Join us for an intensive 3-day Geriatric Psychiatry course which is tailor-made to elevate your expertise and ignite your passion for this field. A recurrent theme throughout the 2024 course is the connection between ageing and psychiatric disorders.


Why should you choose this course?

• We will provide an in-depth review of selected topics (among others biological ageing, physical exercise, suicide, psychosis), guided case discussions and will update you with the latest high-quality research relevant for clinical practice.

• We are thrilled to announce that the brightest minds in the field have already confirmed their participation as instructors, among which:

  • Prof. Brenda Penninx (Amsterdam UMC, Netherlands), expert in biological ageing and affective disorders.
  • Prof. Davy Vancampfort (KU Leuven, Belgium), expert in physical exercise and mental health.
  • Prof. Margda Waern (University of Gothenburg, Sweden), expert in suicide during the life course.
  • Prof. Rob Howard (UCL Institute of Mental Health, London, UK), expert in late-life psychosis.

• A main role is given to international experts. Each expert will have 90 minutes to fill in with a lecture as well as a meet-the-expert session. Interaction and discussion will be facilitated due to the small-scale of the course (up to 40 participants) and availability of the experts during the breaks.

• The course is accommodated by the KU Leuven at the University Residential Area Groot Begijnhof. The Groot Begijnhof is a pedestrian and cobble stoned charming ‘village’ within the city of Leuven. The Begijnhof is a web of houses, small streets and grass patches, which contributes to a charming and relaxed atmosphere.
