TAE Day 2024

If you are a trainee or a young scientist in CM/ID, don’t miss the opportunity to join the TAE Day, a well-received ESCMID Global session organised by the Trainee Association of ESCMID where different activities related to trainees will take place.


Like the previous years, different ESCMID opportunities will be presented, followed by the TAE Award. The highlight of the TAE Day is the Round Table Session, an informal setting where trainees/young professionals can get inspiration from renowned experts in CM and ID. Every year, participants have the opportunity to informally interact with these experts, discuss the main challenges and decisions during clinical and/or research career, get career advice, learn about career/research opportunities and strengthen their network.
