The 21° ESPRM Congress will host its first EUROPEAN PRM SCHOOL. The School was  established on a proposal of the President of the ESPRM Alain Delarque; it is organized with the participation of the four PRM European bodies : EARM, ESPRM, UEMS PRM Section and Board, with the aim of offering to the European PRM trainees a new PRM school in Europe, based on a comprehensive programme.

On Tuesday and Wednesday the European PRM School Vilnius 2018 will benefit from the participation of the three current PRM Schools:

  • EuropeanSchool Marseille on Motor Disabilities, founded in 2000
  • Euromediterranean Rehabilitation Summer School of Syracuse, founded in 2005
  • International Teaching Programme (ITP), founded in 2010

Each school will organize a Special Session during the Congress.

From Thursday the PRM trainees will follow the “fil rouge” and benefit from lessons of high level lecturers participating in the scientific sessions. Their lectures will be dedicated first to the PRM trainees. The presentations of the chapters of the White Book 3d Edition will also be included in the “fil rouge” programme (link to the White Book).

A specific teaching programme for Russian speaking PRM trainees will take place, thanks to Alvydas Juocevicius. It will represent a unique opportunity to share knowledge and to strenghten the links in a broad professional community.

All PRM trainees registered in the School will benefit from a repository of selected materials collected by Nikos Barotsis, including the presentations of the speakers and other related documents.
