The Pediatric ENT Symposium 2024

The Danish ENT Academy is delighted to host the first Pediatric ENT Symposium 2024.

This symposium will include lectures about various common illnesses found in children such as tonsillitis, sinusitis and ear infections using the latest guidelines for medical treatment and the most advanced techniques for surgical treatment. Thus, the aim of this symposium is to concentrate and disseminate information concerning prevention, cure and care of otorhinolaryngology disorders in infants and children due to developmental, degenerative, infectious, neoplastic, traumatic and social causes.

We welcome both doctors and nurses as well as both presenters and delegates to this exciting scientific program, where we have a great lineup of Danish and international speakers.

The symposium will take place in beautiful surroundings at The Natural History Museum of Denmark, where there will be plenty of opportunity to network with other doctors as a guided tour and course dinner at the museum is included in your ticket.

Location: The Natural History Museum of Denmark (Øster Voldgade 5,7, 1350 Copenhagen K, Denmark)
