The Foundation for Hand Surgery is a non-profit European organization, independent, without industrial support or conflict of interest. The status of the foundation based in Geneva can be consulted on the website www.foundation-handsurgery.org. Its aim is to offer additional training opportunities for hand surgeons at all stages of their professional training, from the early years to the final stages of perfecting their already acquired technical skills.
Education program includes both junior sessions for surgeons-in-training and senior sessions. The "senior" sessions are intended primarily for surgeons wanting to benefit from the experience of expert surgeons with a reputation on a particular issue. Many invited experts from Europa are part of the education training program. The sessions are organized in Geneva (Swiss Foundation for innovation and training surgery-SFITS- Geneva University Hospital) and at the School of Surgery in the microsurgery laboratory (Nancy, Fr). The preliminary program for the first five training modules over a period of six months, is below.
Applicants participating in the training will be able to register on the dedicated site www.foundation-handsurgery.org. We hope to see you and share our experiences.
