EUROSPINE Diploma Course
EDUWEEK 28-30 June 2021The COVID-19 pandemic is not yet behind us, despite huge global efforts towards vaccination.
With the best interest of all stakeholders in mind and to guarantee the safety of the participants, faculty, staff and everyone involved in delivering the EduWeek, the EduWeek 2021 will be held fully virtual on 28 to 30 June 2021.
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 which will support them in their clinical practice. Through lectures and face to face sessions participants will have learning outcomes based on science that can be used in critical decision making.
Course Format and DesignThis is a blended learning course (online lectures and live virtual educational event) composed of 6 modules, interactive sessions - case based discussions, and skills workshop (for module 2 only).
The modules include pre-learning and assessments. The number of hours of personal study vary per module.
Not all 6 modules can be taken at once. A maximum of 5 modules can be attended during the EduWeek 2021 as modules overlap. There is no particular order in which to take the modules. It is however recommended, whenever possible, to take the EUROSPINE Diploma Module 1 in the first year.
Module 6 (Literature course) 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.
eLearning Component (Asynchronous)Accessibility of eLearning modules: As of 1 April 2021.
Only participants who have paid the registration will be given access to the eLearning component of the EduWeek. Participants can take the eLearning component at their own pace, but are advised to complete their eLearning modules prior to the live (virtual) component.
