Every year around mid-June, the Institute of Myology offers the possibility to get trained in Myology thanks to a condensed 6-day course organized in Paris. The course is open to foreign applicants whichever country they come from with special attention, though, to those posted in the French Overseas Territories (DOM-TOM) and those working in low-income countries.
The content of the Summer School is similar to that of the University Diploma delivered jointly by Paris-6 and Aix-Marseilles Universities 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.
Since 1998, 600 students have attended the course and been taught by internationally recognized faculties.
