Every year around mid-June, the Institute of Myology of Paris organizes a comprehensive training course in Myology in the form a a condensed 8-day course. The course is open to foreign healthcare professionals with special facilitating conditions for applicants posted in the French Overseas Territories (DOM-TOM) and in low-income countries.
The content of the Summer School is similar to that of the University Diploma delivered jointly by Sorbonne University and Aix-Marseille University all year long. Only a certificate of attendance will be given upon completion of the Summer School as well as CME points.
Most aspects of Myology are addressed during the course : from basic science to cutting-edge therapies, clinical and genetic approaches of muscle diseases are taught. This is achieved by a series of lectures and interactive workshops, all conducted in English. The course expands on 8 days, the last 2 days being optional.
Since 1998, more than 800 students have attended the course and been taught by internationally recognized faculties.
In view of the health situation, the Summer School of Myology 2021, originally scheduled in-person mid-June 2021, took place on July 5-9, 2021 in virtual mode and led to the creation of AcadeMYO, the first fully digital version of our summer school.
