ESA Masterclasses

2011 Masterclass in Scientific Writing

Evidence-based practice and guidelines apply the best available evidence gained from clinical trials to clinical decision making.  In addition, adequate presentation of data from clinical trials is important for successful publication in internationally respected medical journals indexed by the Philadelphia Institute

Masterclass in Scientific Writing is a new advanced scientific workshop dedicated to learn how to critically write and appraise scientific articles and abstracts. During this workshop participants will learn how to recognize good and poor quality papers, how to choose the right journal for publication, avoid common mistakes in the publication process and communicate efficiently with the editorial team. 

This new ESA workshop is aimed at future leaders in European anaesthesia research: young anaesthesiologists who already have some experience in the field of clinical research and clear motivation to choose an academic path for their medical career in future. The programme contains a series of lectures and workshops during which participants will apply the knowledge learned during lectures in a form of practical exercises. The course faculty are leading international experts in scientific medical writing.

Target audience

The course is open to all active ESA members below 40 years of age who are fluent in the English language, already have some publications in their native language and make recognizable efforts to develop their knowledge.
