ASiT Dutch Microsurgery Course


Microsurgery skills for surgeons in training

Combine microsurgery skills training with a trip to Amsterdam……

ASiT are pleased to announce that the next ASiT Dutch Microsurgery Course will be held on April 14-18  2014.



Max 6 delegates per course

Discounted registration fee exclusive to ASiT members: £1225 *

ASiT, with the support of an educational grant from Covidien UK, have agreed a discounted price for this 5-day intensive in vivo microsurgery course at the Rene Remie Surgical Skills Centre in Almere (20mins from Amsterdam Centraal)

The course aims to introduce fundamental skills and techniques required for microsurgical dissection, anastomosis and neurovascular repair. Skills covered include end-to-end vascular anastomosis, vein graft, nerve repair and groin flap techniques using live rat models.

The course is led by Professor Remie – a professor of microsurgery who has over 35 years experience as a microsurgery instructor. Although the teaching is structured, the informal environment of the RRSSC creates the ideal training atmosphere. The course is also tailored to individual learning needs.

Breakfast, lunch, refreshments and a course BBQ and are included in the registration fee.

A late start on the first course day is designed to permit travel from the UK on the monday morning to help avoid the need for accommodation the evening before.

A special delegate discount at the Bastion Hotel, Almere has also been agreed.

See below for the full course programme and application form.
