Overview

The ESAVS Soft Tissue Surgery courses are dedicated to veterinarians in practice or in the academic field who are willing to deepen their knowledge in soft tissue surgery. The comprehensive study program consists currently of 4 one-week modules. Each course is composed of a mix of theory and practice on models and cadavers. Much time is dedicated to interactive and practical training under the supervision of course masters and instructors, who are all internationally recognized European or American specialists.

After attending the whole program, participants shall have acquired sufficient knowledge not only to face most of the current clinical situations but also to further progress by themselves and then recognize the cases that need to be referred to specialists.

STS I (Soft Tissue Surgery I) is mandatory before continuing on to the next courses. STS II, III and IV can be taken in any order. It is recommended to take STS V only after completion of the previous courses.

Soft Tissue Surgery I:
This course focuses on the basic principles of surgery, tissue handling, knotting techniques and general abdominal and gastro-intestinal surgery.

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course, participants 1) shall be able to apply atraumatic surgery principles on all occasions, 2) Master current abdominal surgeries principles and techniques, 3) have changed paradigm, not trying anymore to know “how” but “why”.
