Summer school of experimental surgery 2022 organized by Charles University, Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen

Dear partner,

I’d like to share with you the call for applications for Summer school of experimental surgery 2022 organized by Charles University, Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen.

Date: 4 to 15 July 2022

Price: 1600 EUR

Deadline: February 28th, 2022

Registration: http://www.sses.eu/109/application-sses

SSES is open to (pre-graduate) medical students of third or higher year of study, it lasts two weeks and aims not only to demonstrate experimental surgery in practical exercises, but also to introduce you to the possibilities, limits and boundaries of the field. Considerable time and space is devoted to methods that can partially replace our experimental work or enhance it with an extra dimension – such as software modeling, working with cell cultures, etc. The curriculum also includes perioperative care of experimental animals, anesthesia, surgical techniques, preparation of animal models, experimental radiology, evaluation of the experiment (histological, biochemical, statistical methods, etc). Great emphasis is also put on the ethical aspects of experimental surgical procedures with regard to the principle of the 3R's (reduction, refinement, replacement).

I would appreciate if you could share this offer with your medical students.

Best regards,
