Short description: International one-week interuniversity course on infectious diseases


The ‘International Intensive Infectious Diseases Course’ (I³DC) is a complete course on infectious diseases and is organised in the framework of IDEAL (Infectious Diseases European/African Learning), an international Erasmus-funded teaching program. I³DC is the result of a collaboration between different European universities (Paris-Descartes, Roma, Antwerp and Edinburgh) and is delivered in English by teachers from various backgrounds (Infectious Diseases, Internal Medicine, Microbiology, Pathology, Public Health).

Infectious diseases have been taught specifically in microbiology courses and are a transversal theme touched upon in any module of any organ system. This course compresses all this knowledge in one course module for students with a specific interest. Frontal lectures are combined with practical interactive sessions including quizzes, clinical cases and a movie.   

I³DC will be held at the University of Antwerp for the first time in November 2017. Medicine students of the 4th year can choose I³DC as an elective course and will obtain 4 ECTS upon successful completion of the course.

Main teachers: Prof Jean-Pierre Van geertruyden, Prof Erika Vlieghe, Prof Pierre Van Damme (University of Antwerp)
