virtual PWID Preceptorship, 16th of December 2021

About

People Who Inject Drugs (PWID)

The PWID Preceptorship 2021 is a half-day interactive course for about 40 physicians. This unique event was hosted annually since 2014 and has featured numerous internationally renowned speakers. The aim of the PWID Preceptorship is to provide an interactive course for young and interested physicians in the fields of infectious diseases, somatic addiction medicine and psychiatry who care for patients who inject drugs. This year, the event will be hosted virtually. We hope to be able to meet in person again in 2022 forward.

This years program features a variety of lectures, interactive modules and a virtual tour of ARUD Zurich, a “one stop” model for addiction care.
We look forward to welcoming you to an exciting and interesting PWID Preceptorship 2021. Please feel free to subscribe in the registration area of this website. We will accept the submitted forms on a first-come-first-serve basis until we reach a maximum of 40 participants.
