The curriculum has been designed and specifically tailored to the Eastern Mediterranean Region, and will be focusing on arthropod-borne parasites. 30-40% of the topics of the International Summer Course on Parasitology will be theoretical and 60-70% practical, and fifteen Iranian professors, mostly from TUMS, will be teaching in the International Summer Course of Parasitology. In addition, a group of European and South American professors will attend this scientific gathering.
