Basic Course


Registration for the 2019 Course is not yet open. Opening of the registration for 2019 will be advertised here and in our newsletter.


This course is composed of five modules providing young surgeons with a reference based, standardized curriculum in degenerative challenges, spinal deformities, trauma, tumors & inflammatory disease which will support them in their clinical practice. Through lectures participants will have learning outcomes based on science that can be used in critical decision making.

Target Audience

Senior trainees and trained surgeons, who are planning a career in spinal surgery.

Learning outcomes

There is a need to provide young surgeons with a reference based, standardized curriculum.

Course format and design

This is a live educational event composed of 5 modules where there will be blended learning of lectures, interactive sessions - case based discussions, plenary sessions and cadaver lab workshops.

Not all 5 modules can be taken at once. A maximum of 3 modules can be attended during one Education Week as modules overlap. There is no particular order in which to take the modules. It is however recommended, whenever possible, to take Module 1 - Basic Comprehensive Course in the first year.
