Description
This module will be offered during the Davos Courses 2015 on Monday, December 14.

What to expect
Emre Acaroglu says, “These two modules cover the most demanding situations encountered in spinal surgery. Because these problems are not frequently seen, the evidence base may not be as conclusive as for other, more common clinical problems. This makes exposure to different opinions and the evaluation of different approaches very important.”

Outlining the benefits
Acaroglu shares, “The fully ‘case-based’ educational format at the Davos Courses provides the closest possible communication between the participants and faculty. Participants can be sure that they will take home a substantial knowledge base.
Solutions to real problems encountered in routine daily practice, rather than a theoretical framework of possible problems, are presented. This is another advantage of the ‘case-based’ format, as participants are absorbed into discussions that are relevant for them and internalize the basis of knowledge much easier in comparison to the classical lecture based course format.”

Join us at the Davos Courses, where expert knowledge is enhanced, lifelong professional networks are created and friendships are maintained!
