Teaching Method

This five-day course is held either at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University-Hospital, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany or in Groningen, The Netherlands (more information to be shared soon) under the direction/instruction of Dr. Gustavo Pérez-Abadía, Assistant Professor of Physiology, University of Louisville, Kentucky, USA. 

The course runs from 9:00AM to 4:00PM, Monday through Friday and trains a maximum of five trainees at a time.

This course, initially conceived for beginner microsurgeons, is intensive and hands-on. However, the small class size makes the instruction flexible and thus equally valuable for those with previous training who want to make a new beginning in order to strengthen and upgrade their skills.

The purpose of the course is “to lay the foundations of the principal skills that make up good microsurgical technique”. 

These skills include

  • Comfort and peace-of-mind.
  • Consistent use of proper hand position.
  • Efficient use of microsurgical instruments and equipment, and
  • A disciplined, step-by-step approach to the preparatory aspects of the surgical procedure.
