Pre- and post-congress courses offer a focus on applied knowledge and skills, and are uniquely designed to complement the main scientific programme and offer delegates the chance to:

  • explore issues in depth
  • gain practical experience
  • listen to the latest research and advances in practice
  • learn directly from experts via a range of learning formats
  • meet fellow delegates in their field of interest

Pre- and post-congress courses are an optional element that are open to delegates who register to attend at least one day of the main congress and they carry a separate fee. A range of half-day, one and two-day courses are being offered on the days preceding congress, 9th - 10th May 2019, and the days following congress, 14th – 15th May 2019.

Language: all courses are delivered in English but a number provide support in different languages, please see individual courses for details.

To book: add a course via the online registration system.

All course venues will be in central Geneva and will be accessible via public transport.

Registration fees for those from low and lower-middle income countries

To enable delegates from low and lower middle-income countries to participate in pre- and post-congress courses, WCPT has reserved at least three spaces on each course that will be available at a reduced fee.

Delegates from a low income country will receive a 50% discount and delegates from a lower-middle income country will receive a 25% discount on the course fee.

These limited spaces will be offered via a lottery: Enter the course lottery
