Unfortunately the LapCME course scheduled for the 15-16 June at ORSI in Belgium has been postponed until further notice.

The health and wellbeing of ESCP members is a top priority for the organisation and the ESCP Executive Committee are closely monitoring the global Coronavirus situation as it develops.  In the meantime, we advise members to adhere to recommendations from local governments and the World Health Organisations (WHO) in helping to prevent/reduce the risk of spreading the Coronavirus on a larger scale and to contact relevant travel operators directly for updates on scheduled travel arrangements.
