DZIF Academy: High-level education for young scientists© TU München

Educating and training the next generation of researchers in infectious diseases is the aim of the DZIF Academy. Highly attractive educational programs for students and postgraduates are fundamental for excellent basic, translational and clinican scientists. 

Currently, the DZIF Academy offers:

Education & Coaching
Translational Seminars 
Prizes for excellent research 
Guest Faculty

Using a multidisciplinary training approach, the Academy programs are designed to promote career opportunities for young scientists in the fields of clinical infectious diseases, microbiology, virology, immunology and molecular medicine. It supports female scientists and young parents during critical phases of their career.

At the same time, Academy programs allow trained clinicians to sharpen their scientific profile in parallel to specializing in infectious diseases and to qualify for an academic career. For this, the DZIF Academy closely collaborates with the German Societies for Infectious Diseases (DGI) and Pediatric Infectious Diseases (DGPI) and will award the DZIF certificates “Excellence in Infectious Diseases” and “PhD in Infection Research”.
