The 10th Summer School of Experimental Surgery is coming to an end. Even though it's a little sad, we actually want to celebrate. To celebrate the 10 years of meeting new people, of helping them learn surgery so that they can advance in the medical field and help other people. We are proud of having welcomed almost 300 students from 35 countries and working with them regardless of their origin. So long, and see you next time ;)

Refreshing our curriculum

As this year’s summer school marks the 10th anniversary of its existence, we have decided to give it an extra notch. On top of our standard surgical practice lessons, we added three different hands-on skill-oriented lessons that should improve your capabilities in more specialized areas of surgery. You can look forward to learning the basics of plastic surgery, vascular surgery and microsurgery. When? Just look at the programme here.

Last week, we hosted a surgical course of the Johnson&Johnson Institute called Scenario Planning in Abdominal Surgery (photos on our facebook). The program's highlight was managing complications in laparoscopic abdominal surgery as well as a demonstration of stapling techniques – things that we don't do at the Summer School. Nevertheless, you need to walk before you can run, so that's why we are looking forward to teaching you the basics of surgery at the Summer School, starting next week!
