Dear collegues and friends,
we have to apologize that we were not able to inform you earlier on the training plans for this year. The reason is
known to you all. Now, with strongly declining numbers of COVID-19 in Germany, we have taken the decision to offer a five-day ECMO course for physicians and perfusionists this
September onsite, however restricted to participants from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with German as the course language.
In October, a three-day ECMO course for nurses will be offered in German language, too.
The decision to restrict the courses did not come easy to us, because we are aware that many people from different
countries would like to apply for ECMO training. Yet, with evolving variants of concern in different parts of the world, the risk to spread those among ECMO specialists from different countries
would be incalculable; also, there are still travel restrictions for many parts of the world.
Please note that everybody, who wants to attend will need proof of full vaccination against SARS-CoV-2, in addition we
will offer an onsite PCR-test on arrival. Because the need for training is substantial, we would ask you that not more than 2 people apply from the same center.
The date for the 3. ECMO Trainingskurs Regensburg is from 27 September until 01 October 2021,
the date for the 2. Pflege ECMO Kurs Regensburg is from 04 October until 06 October 2021.
Registration is open now
We are looking forward to meeting again,
for the organizers
