ICAVT - International Collaboration for Advanced Vaccinology Training

The purpose of of this e-portal is to provide current information on available vaccinology training across the world. The e-portal was initiated by the participants of a workshop held 7–8 November 2018, at the initiative of the Advanced Course of Vaccinology (ADVAC), and is now maintained by the members of the International Collaboration for Advanced Vaccinology Training (ICAVT), a global network of vaccinology training providers.

The information provided on each course is at the sole responsibility of the persons in charge of these courses and their websites. Guidance is available on minimum elements of information to be provided on the vaccinology course websites.

The listing of a vaccinology course on this page does not mean an endorsement of its content or any certification of the quality of the teaching approach. All training courses listed on this website have obtained formal endorsement/accreditation from either a tertiary training institution and/or a training accreditation institution (e.g. Continued Medical Education).

All courses listed, while varying in nature and prerequisites, tend to be advanced courses covering multiple aspects of vaccinology. Other courses may be available such as national courses targeting health workers or courses of a more focused nature such as courses on vaccine safety.

We suggest that you also contact your National Immunization Programme and/or browse the WHO website to find information on such courses.

If you know of any other vaccinology course not currently listed on this webpage or suggestions on how to improve the usefulness of this page-portal, kindly send us a mail at:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
