Surgery out of your comfort zone
For attendance in person: a copy of the COVID-19 vaccination record or a negative PCR test (48 hrs prior to the conference) or Antigen test (24hrs prior to the conference) must be presented at the registration desk.
For international participants, please follow the entry requirements published on the Gobiernu di Korsou website.
After being forced to delay the symposium several times due to force majeure, the CMC surgical department and NASKHO are glad to announce that this time our surgical conference will finally take place.
The theme of the conference, ``Surgery out of your comfort zone``, goes well with the global situation of the past year and a half. COVID-19 compelled many healthcare professionals to work far out of their comfort zone. The main goal of the symposium is to exchange tips & tricks on the diagnostics and management of challenging surgical cases.
The wide variety of topics that will be discussed (see the program below) makes the conference interesting for surgeons as well as other medical professionals and healthcare workers. Lectures will be given by a diverse group of Caribbean, European and South-American experts.
On behalf of the CMC surgical department, I hope to meet you all in person on our beautiful island.
