Course description:

The course consists of three days of intense training done under the surgical microscope, approaching it with basic exercises for dexterity and familiarisation with the microsurgical setting and moving on to more complex and advanced procedures that include performing vascular anastomosis on laboratory animals. The theoretical part of the course is accompanied by a practical part that includes demonstrations performed by the main instructor at a central desk. The participants will work in pairs, one at a time, at the surgical microscope and both of them will be able to perform the procedures as the main operator.* The trainers will supervise and help the participants to acquire the surgical manoeuvres that are being shown by the main instructor as well as give feedback on their work.
