The workshop is reserved for 15 participants and aims to allow a fair approach to the minimally invasive surgical procedures most commonly encountered in dog and cat surgery.
The reduced number of participants allows direct contact and constant interaction with trainers to provide a fast and good learning of the procedures.
The practical part will be achieved by using all necessary equipment, with practical tests on surgical simulators, followed by live surgery.
The participants will perform all the surgical procedures and techniques described in the theoretical session, under the direct supervision of the trainers.
