During the EHS congress we expect a group of 'mixed generations' attendees, consisting of experienced surgeons and residents.
For the residents and young surgeons, a special program is designed: the resident track.
Experts will chair these tracks. We aim for an interactive approach and would like to invite you to provide us with your questions or case(s). Besides this, some lecturers from the pre-course will present their technique during the resident track.
Join the meeting and you will be able to learn everything you always wanted to know about a certain topic. Acquired ventral hernias, groin hernias and incisional hernias will be discussed in separate meetings.
The resident track is part of the regular programme of this conference, it is not necessary to register separately for this part.
