The Eighth European Course in Clinical Dysmorphology & Eurodysmoclub are back-to-back events.

The Eighth European Course in Dysmorphology & Eurodysmoclub are characterized by the attendance of lecturers that will deal with the issue of which Medical Genetics considers them leading experts: hence the name “What I Know Best”. This is the 8th edition of the Course, only for a maximum of 250 participants, and it is going to be held via streaming.

Both national and international personalities are expected to participate. Furthermore, many of them are already subject matter experts.

During this new edition, the latest genetic conditions will be discussed, identified through the support of the most recent technological progresses, as the introduction of the new-generation Sequencing Methods.

The large participation recorded in previous editions and the request for a new edition from a great number of former participants are a significant sign of a considerable interest in Dysmorphology and in this specific Course.

The Eurodysmoclub is a unique occasion of sharing of extremely rare and educational clinical cases with world-class experts.
