This handout will make it easier to follow the presentations, without copiously trying to keep notes, while it will serve as an excellent reference after the course is completed.
All participants will receive a certificate of completion of the Hands-on Cadaver Course.
Medical residents attending the Total Hip Replacement course will receive 18 Continuing Medical Education (CME) points upon completion of the seminar, in accordance to EACCME-UEMS.
The workshops will have scheduled breaks, during which lunch and refreshments will be offered.
