The EACD General Management Committee selects the members of the Education & Training Committee. EACD Education & Training Committee members are elected for a period of 3 years (renewable once). The Committee is anticipated to meet at least once every two months and to report a meeting summary back to the General Management Committee.

The Education & Training Committee members are expected to work closely with each other. Education & Training Committee members have to be members of EACD and must attend the EACD Annual Meetings during their term.

Develop and promote measures to make educational material and clinical guidelines easily accessible and locally available.
Create and distribute educational products that are relevant to the membership, subject to GMC approval and in close collaboration with the EACD Scientific Committee, including but not limited to webinars, e-courses, workshops, and training schools.
