EUROSPINE Diploma Course
2020 EUROSPINE Diploma Courses (29 June-3 July 2020) POSTPONED until January 2021It is with regret that we have decided to postpone the EUROSPINE Education Week (EduWeek). This decision has been taken by the EUROSPINE Presidential Line in light of the evolving and unprecedented uncertainty of the COVID-19 global situation.
It is important that we all play our part in minimising travel and exposure to this virus and ensure that healthcare professionals are available to care for patients. EUROSPINE fully supports our healthcare professionals in their unwavering efforts to fight the pandemic.
EduWeek, originally scheduled to take place from 29 June to 3 July 2020, has been provisionally POSTPONED until 11-15 January 2021.
The EUROSPINE Hybrid EduWeek, due to take place on 23-25 November 2020 in Geneva, will take place as originally scheduled
Please mark your calendar and dates will be confirmed soon.
OverviewThis course is composed of 6 modules providing young surgeons with a reference based, standardised curriculum in degenerative challenges, spinal deformities, trauma, tumours & inflammatory disease, literature review 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.
Module 6 (Literature course, also named EDSIC Module 1) is only mandatory in order to obtain the EUROSPINE Diploma for participants who have started taking their diploma courses as of 2020. Participants who have started taking their modules before 2020 do not need to complete this module to obtain their diploma.
Course format and designThis is a live educational event composed of 6 modules where there will be blended learning of lectures, interactive sessions - case based discussions, plenary sessions and cadaver lab workshops.
Not all 6 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 Basic Module 1 in the first year.
