Flyer chirurgendagen 2019


16-17 May 2019

In 2019 staan de chirurgendagen in het teken van ECHT Heelkunde. ECHT Heelkunde vóór en over ECHTE chirurgen. Als ECHTE chirurgen staan ons uitdagingen en kansen te wachten vanuit Hoofdlijnenakkoord en maatschappelijke vraagstukken. ECHTE chirurgen nemen hierin de regie, zoals ECHTE chirurgen in complexe patiëntenzorg gewend zijn.
De NSIS zal een symposium verzorgen over ECHTE Global Surgery. Onderwerpen die aan bod komen zijn de stand van zaken van Global Surgery in de wereld, en er zal een interessante spreker over oorlogschirurgie komen spreken.
