Starters package 2019-2020
ESRU.be starters package
This year ESRU.be and the Belgian Laparoscopic Urology Group (BLUG) will organize the 13th edition of the Starters package for fourth-year residents. All fourth-year residents are invited to participate in this training program which offers theoretical and practical training on laparoscopic and robotic skills. As some residents are doing research or extra years abroad, a fourth year resident is defined as somebody who still has three more years of training to go (starting from August 1, 2019).
The Starters package consists of one theoretical module followed by three practical modules spread over the upcoming months (November-April). Please note that we expect you to be present on all courses (including the theoretical course), to ensure to everyone gets most out of the provided training by the BLUG members. This is a big chance to get a high-end theoretical and practical training by specialized colleagues of the BLUG with surgery on human cadavers and life-surgery on pigs, so don't miss out on this!
We ask a contribution of €200 to participants, which is only a small fraction of the total costs, which are around €2.500-3.000 per participant.
