Summer School of Myology: For 25 years, 1,000 medical doctors from all over the world have been training in muscle science and medicine

In 1998, the Institute of Myology, an international center of expertise on muscle, created the Summer School of Myology with the aim of disseminating knowledge and advances in research on neuromuscular diseases, 400 different forms of which have been identified to date, to healthcare professionals. Coordinated by doctors J.A. Urtizberea and Norma B. Romero, this “summer school” trains doctors from all over the world. In 25 years, knowledge of neuromuscular diseases has gone from a veritable medical desert to the first available treatments.

From 12 to 16 June 2023, the Institute of Myology is organizing the 25th edition of its Summer School of Myology. Given in English by doctors and scientists who are experts in their field, this one-week training course, either face-to-face or distance learning, enables “students” to follow a condensed and accelerated teaching program.

Since its inception, the Summer School of Myology has trained over 1,000 doctors of 70 different nationalities on 5 continents. Coming from Argentina, Brazil, Nepal, Peru, Latvia, Lebanon, Ivory Coast, Benin, Iran, India, Italy, Spain, England, etc., the doctors and researchers now form a truly international network of myology experts.

“Myology is a discipline that is still too rarely taught in the traditional curriculum. We are very proud to have passed on our knowledge throughout the world, and to have inspired others to pass it on in their own countries” emphasizes Dr. J.A. Urtizberea.
