TESC 2018

The European Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Trans European Scientific Contest

ESPRM TESC 2018 Vilnius

Wednesday May 2, 2018

During previous congresses of ESPRM there has been a contest called TESC.
The aim of TESC is to stimulate young physicians in PRM to perform clinical research and to present the results during the ESPRM congresses.
Each national society has the right to select one young PRM physician to compete in TESC.
The candidates should be residents or young specialists in PRM not more than 3 years after graduation as PRM specialist.
They should present their own research and have approval of their supervisor.
Because each national society is allowed to delegate one candidate, national societies are requested to organize in their own countries and during the meeting of their national society a selection procedure/national contest in order to select the best candidate from each country.
Your national society is free on how to organize this selection procedure.
