The TBNET academy provides an excellent forum for 20 young European clinicians and researchers in the field of tuberculosis to exchange ideas and to learn from each other under expert guidance and mentorship. It is a very good opportunity for upcoming researchers to participate in a pan-European research network, to get to know colleagues in the same field from different parts of Europe and to plan future collaborations.
Everyone who will take part in the TBNET Academy will have an active role. Participants will be selected on basis of their motivation letter, research experience and career plans. They can choose among 5 categories:
1. TB Epidemiology
2. TB diagnostics
3. TB Prevention
4. TB treatment
5. Clinical pearls (case reports)
and will be asked to provide a state-of-the-art lecture on their topic or clinical case report together with colleagues from other countries. The presentations will be prepared under guidance of experienced mentors. Apart from keynote lectures and career development sessions there will be a teaching ward round at the national MDR-TB center and visit to the national TB laboratory.

The TBNET Academy is open for interested medical students who perform research in the area of tuberculosis or NTM diseases . Clinicans and scientists who apply should have had their last academic exam within 3 years of the application. Distributed representation of participants throughout Europe will be ensured. Participation in the TBNET Academy will be funded with travel/accommodation stipends up to the amount of 500 Euros per person. Travel and accommodation will be booked by the TBNET office for those 20 applicants who will be selected.
