Since September 2015, the Moroccan Society for Primary immunodeficiencies (MSPID) organizes a course on Primary immunodeficiencies: From Basic Immunology to Clinical presentation. This course comprises 10 lessons: a general introduction to immune response and basis of each PID category and their clinical presentation. Attendants for this year are the core members of MSPID, to evaluate the course content.
