EUROSPINE Diploma Course


This course is composed of 5 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.

2019 Schedule

Important note

Please note that during the Hybrid EduWeek:

1. Only Module 2 has CadLab
2. Only EDISC module 1 is available (the other EDISC Modules are only delivered during the traditional EduWeek).

Course Format and Design

This is a blended learning course (online lectures and live educational event) composed of 5 modules, interactive sessions - case based discussions, and cadaver lab workshops (Module 2).

The modules include pre-learning and assessments. The number of hours of personal study vary per module.

Not all 5 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.

Modules of the traditional and Hybrid EduWeek can be combined.
