Each course is conducted twice a year at the University Medical Centre of Geneva and Clinique Générale Beaulieu and consists of hands-on training on synthetic and animal models. The limited number of participants allows for a very friendly and interactive approach, which contributes to quick learning. During the courses various international speakers share their expertise and discuss their case scenarios with the participants.
