at Les Pensières Center for Global Health, Veyrier-du-Lac, Annecy, France


The ICCBH Bone School is a 3-day residential international educational course giving the opportunity for participants to learn about and discuss mechanisms, clinical diagnosis and treatment of paediatric bone health and rare bone diseases.

The first school took place in Dublin, Ireland from 29 June to 1 July 2022. The second was held in Annecy, France from Monday 29 to Wednesday 31 May 2023.

More information about our next Bone School which is provisionally planned for 2025 will be available later this year.   

Aims and Objectives

On completion of this educational course participants will:

  • Understand the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying bone fragility and mineralization disorders
  • Understand how rare bone and muscle disorders affect the skeleton and growth
  • Understand bone ultrastructure and bone imaging and how chronic diseases affect bone muscle and bone
  • Be able to differentiate between mineralization and fragility disorders
  • Understand the diagnostic and therapeutic options for the management of paediatric bone disorders

Course Organiser: Wolfgang Högler (Linz, Austria)

Who should attend?

Clinical paediatric adult and endocrine trainees and fellows with an interest in bone disease

Clinical and translational researchers

The Bone school aims to supplement a working knowledge of bone metabolism and skeletal disorders. Therefore the course is best suited to the following groups:

  • Senior (Year3+) Trainees in paediatric or adult endocrinology or relative specialities (genetics/ metabolic/orthopaedics)
  • Clinical fellows with an interest in bone disease
  • Postdoctoral clinical and translational researchers in fields related to bone metabolism or skeletal disorders

Numbers will be limited to 48 delegates in order to promote interaction and discussion both within and outside the lecture theatre. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with some of leading experts in the field.
