Stroke Summer School


Dear Colleagues,

For the last 20 years, the Stroke Summer School is a flagship event for the European Stroke Organisation (ESO) and a prestigious educational meeting for stroke trainees throughout Europe. During these two decades, hundreds of young physicians with a major interest in cerebrovascular diseases had the opportunity to attend this high-quality event, acquire cutting-edge knowledge and become interconnected with other stroke physicians around Europe. For all of us in the ESO, it is very rewarding to see that many of the previous Stroke Summer School’s participants have evolved to become leading stroke physicians and researchers.

This year, the 21st ESO Stroke Summer School will travel south-east and will be organized in the wider Larissa region in Greece between the 10th and 15th of September 2017. There, at the point where the eastern foot of Olympus dives into the Aegean sea, the participants will have the opportunity to join a faculty of experienced international and local speakers for a program which discuss all major aspects of stroke.

We, at the ESO and the local organizing committee, are working hard to prepare an exciting week for our future stroke leaders!

In this website you will find all the information needed concerning the implementation of the summer school. The material will soon be enriched with further details for your convenience.

We are looking forward to meeting you in September in Greece!

Feedback from Participants

Under the shadow of Mount Olympus, 50 stroke enthusiasts from Europe and beyond gathered to experience five days of wonderful Greek hospitality at the ESO Stroke Summer School 2017. We were asked on the first day what we wanted to get out of the summer school: From “Learn more about stroke” to “Learn more about how other countries handle things differently” and “Having a good time”, we can confirm that all these goals and even more were definitely achieved. Furthermore we are lucky to call it collegues from different countries of Europe our friends now. In a world which is changing faster qnd faster it is especially important keep an open mind and bring people together. We expand our knowledge about stroke field. Now, new pathways are opened. Honestly, It has been an unforgettable experience for a lifetime!!
