Course Overview

The ESAVS Soft tissue Surgery courses are dedicated to veterinarians in practice or in academic willing to deepen their knowledge in soft tissue surgery. The comprehensive study program consists currently of 7 one-week modules, respectively Soft Tissue Surgery I to V, Feline soft tissue surgery, Laparoscopy.

Each course is composed of a mix of applied theory and practice on models and/or cadavers. Much time is dedicated to interactive and practical training under the supervision of course masters and instructors, all internationally recognized European or American specialists. Unlike other surgery courses given over a succession of 2 days-period, the ESAVS ‘course organization in weeks guarantees that what you learned and what you practiced remains engraved in your mind and in your hands. Join us and have fun while making huge progresses in surgery.

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/or recognize the cases that need to be referred to specialists. More on certificates and master program is to be found on the Home-page.
