DGN-Summer School 2020 Translational Research in Molecular Imaging and Radionuclide Therapy


The DGN Medical Education Committee under the auspices of the German Society of Nuclear Medicine (DGN e. V.) offers the annual “DGN-Summer School”. This successful and popular format of promoting young academics in the field of nuclear medicine was held in 2014 for the first time and is now a well-established landmark course of the DGN.

The target audience of the DGN-Summer School are excellent medical students, medical doctoral students and young academics during their first years of professional education in (nuclear) medicine, medical physics, and (radio) chemistry who are interested in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. The goal is to integrate persons engaged in nuclear medicine into research activities and to grate and encourage them to a long-term academic career in nuclear medicine and connected fields.

The DGN-Summer School will be organised as an international training course in English which will be promoted in Germany as well as internationally. The lectures are open for the general public while all specific courses are for participants only. The participants will actively work on lecture themes in lectures, round-table discussions,case studies and hands-on sessions in order to learn about the different aspects of the respective topic in detail on a profound scientific level. Social events for lunch and in the evening complement the scientific program encouraging further exchange and stimulating discussions between the participants and their tutors.

The participants will be selected based on their applications (CV, letter of motivation, reference letter of their supervisor). Successful applicants will receive a grant for the DGN-Summer School covering the expenses for accommodation, tuition and food. Nationally and internationally distinguished scientists and experts hold the lectures and presentations.
