‘Corona proof’ pediatric surgery courses


Based on the success of the basic course and hands-on workshop during the 11th Pediatric Colorectal Congress in 2018, we have decided to organize a yearly basic course with hands-on sessions. The first version in March 2020 was rated very well, however we will keep improving based on the feedback). This course is educational supported by members of the ERN eUROGEN, ERNICA and ARM-NET and will focus on senior residents, fellows and junior pediatric surgeons.

UEMS accrediation will be requested (in March 2020 it was awarded 18 CME points).

Learn the basics of anorectal malformations and Hirschsprung’s disease
Hands-on training with expert guidance
Sessions on specific topics
Small groups

ECMO & CDH course coming in March 2021

A similar set up will be used as in the previous colorectal courses, which were rated excellently. The first day will be focussed on ECMO, including hands-on training with guidance on inanimate models and the second day is focused on congenital diaphragmatic hernia. This is also including hands-on training of CDH closure in an open CDH model. CME accreditation will be requested.

Registration will come soon, please use the contact form for more information.

Join the courses physical or online!

To make the course ‘Corona proof’ we can only accept 10 physical participants (to obey to national Corona rules). However, it is also possible to join the course online. We have a maximum of 10 online spots as well, to ensure small group discussions, interactive sessions and expert guidance during hands-on training. Even when joining online, you will still be able to train you hands-on skills, with live guidance, because we will send the training models to you, including istruments and sutures. An expert will guide you through the procedures, such as for the physical trainees. You online need an internet connected smartphone with camera!

This makes the course more accessible if travelling is not an option or difficult to realize (either based on Corona rulings, visa restrictions or clinical duties).

The models used during the hands-on workshops of these courses are available on www.pediatrickboxx.com.

    1. Dear Dr Rexhina Leka, if you would like the upcoming course in December, please register as soon as possible, because there are only a few online spots left. Registration is only final after payment, because we need to send the training models to you for the online hands-on sessions.
      If you would like the join the upcoming ECMO and CDH course, please use the contact form and we will keep you posted.
      Kind regards Sanne Botden, course coordinator
