About the ESN

The European School of Neonatology (ESN) represents the educational arm of the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR).

It is a non-for-profit organisation that offers a clinically-integrated Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) in Neonatology, an academic Master of Science (MSc) in Neonatology in collaboration with the University of Southampton, dedicated Special Courses and Training and the lecture series 'Perspectives on Effective Neonatology'.
