This Visiting Surgeon Programme is designed to provide visiting surgeons with the opportunity to learn from an expert surgeon in a hospital environment. Visiting surgeons will observe live surgeries, and have the chance to discuss surgical procedures, techniques and devices.
In addition, a minilab training session (with cadaveric specimen) and instruction can be added for practical application and added educational value.
