Educational Seminar of the APSR
As the name ESAP indicates, the purpose is to improve and disseminate contemporary state-of-the-art knowledge and skills in the study and practice of respiratory medicine in the Asia-Pacific region. by inviting the top class specialists from various respiratory fields, and organizing educational seminars.
There are currently three different Types of APSR Educational activities:
- Educational Seminar of the APSR (ESAP)
Local hosts will propose a theme and the APSR will provide expertise to develop the course, in conjunction with local experts as appropriate.
- APSR-endorsed Educational Events (APSREE)
Local/regional thoracic societies may host and organize educational events, and seek the support of the APSR as an endorsing society. The host can apply for the event to become an APSREE.
- Joint Educational Events of the APSR with other societies (J-ESAP)
The APSR or local host may propose to host joint educational events with other international societies (e.g. the ATS). The terms of reference for such joint activities will be contingent upon discussion and agreement between the APSR and the relevant societies. The APSR may consider supporting one or two faculty/speakers to represent the APSR in such joint activities.
For details about hosting an APSR Educational activity in your area, see the ESAP Guidelines (pdf) and hosting application form (pdf). Further information can be obtained from the Education Committee via the APSR Secretariat at APSRinfo@theapsr.org
