DGfI regards the continuous further training of its members as one of its core tasks. For this reason, the Further Education Commission was founded in 2000. It now coordinates all further education activities of the Society within the DGfI Academy of Immunology.
Our aim is to provide the experts in our field with visible evidence of their expertise. In Germany there is still no specialist training in immunology. Therefore the DGfI developed its own training program, which enables both physicians and natural scientists to obtain such proof of qualification. The society first awarded the Certificat ‘Certified Immunologist DGfI’ in 2002. We use this legally protected designation to identify qualified persons who represent immunology in science and medical application at the highest level.
