PROGRAM

Our two former meetings were called ”Davos for Surgeons” due to our unique way of making world famous speakers gather to discuss surgical training. This time we are proud to announce Dr Denis Mukwege, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate 2018, to be one of our speakers in Session 4. The themes explored in the program are important for all surgical specialities, and we welcome surgeons, surgical residents, health care politicians and decision makers, nurses, students, delegates from the surgical industry, as well as participants who take an interest in the teaching and learning of manual skills more generally (e.g, researchers from the social and behavioural sciences).
