Course Details

Course:Watanabe Practical Shoulder Arthroscopy Course - Diagnostic and Therapeutic
Date:18 - 18 March 2019
Course convened by:Philip Ahrens - The Royal Free Hospital
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. Delegates will gain hands-on experience in practical techniques using models and wet lab training, 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 wet lab work. 

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. 

Places are limited so early registration is encouraged. Please note the course fee includes course material. It is your responsability to cover your own travel or accommodation.
