EUROSPINE Diploma Course

Overview

This 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 Design

This is a blended learning course (online lectures and live educational event) composed of 6 modules, interactive sessions - case based discussions, and cadaver lab workshop (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 3 modules can be attended during one Hybrid EduWeek 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.

Modules of the traditional and Hybrid EduWeek can be combined.
