Course Details

Course:Watanabe Practical Shoulder Arthroscopy Course - Diagnostic & Therapeutic
Date:21 - 21 March 2018
Course convened by:Julie McBirnie
Details:The Watanabe Club is an informal non-affiliated group of dedicated shoulder arthroscopists who are committed to developing training in shoulder arthroscopy in the UK  

The Diagnostic and Therapeutic course includes detailed information on the principles and philosophy of shoulder arthroscopy, which will be of particular value to those surgeons and trainees undertaking shoulder arthroscopy for the first time. 

Delegates will gain hands-on experience in practical techniques using models and cadaver material, and are encouraged to bring case studies on disc for discussion. The high proportion of faculty members to delegates (1:2) will ensure direct supervision and interaction. Both courses will involve lectures, models and cadaveric work. There are only 28 delegate places so delegates are invited to register early to avoid disappointment. This course is intended for UK/Ireland delegates only.

Diagnostic & Therapeutic minimum requirements - to attend Diagnostic and Therapeutic, delegates must be Registrar/SHO level with MRCS completed.

Please note that if you are registering to attend the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Course, due to course Convener's requirements you are unable to register onto the Reconstructive Course on 22-23 March 2018 as the courses are designed to be attended at different intervals. 

Places are limited so early registration is encouraged. Please note the course fee does not include travel or accommodation.
