The comprehensive study program consists currently of 4 one-week modules. A fifth “advanced” module is being planned. Each course is composed of a mix of theory and practice on models and cadavers. Much time is dedicated to interactive and practical training under the supervision of course masters and instructors, who are all internationally recognized European or American specialists.
