The popularity of Postgraduate (PGT) Courses have shown growing interest in practical training. Participants of the previous PGT courses constantly are asking for specific course designed to learn practical surgical skills. We believe that such Surgical Skills Course would improve the practical skills of young surgeons and would lead to more professional treatment of the patients.
The next practical Surgical Skills Course will be held in September 2018. The main topic of the course - Minimally invasive Management of critically ill GI patients.
More information will follow on EDS Website, Facebook, Twitter and www.ssc-kaunas.com at the beginning of 2018.
