The success of the first European Meeting of Residents and PhD students in Surgery in 2016 in Naples, Italy as a part of the Annual Meeting of the European Society of Surgery encouraged us to organize the next Resident’s Meeting in Krakow on the 27th – 30th September 2017, jointly with the 21st Annual Meeting of the European Society of Surgery and the 68th Congress of the Polish Association of Surgeons.
The languages of the conference are Polish and English, but all parts dedicated to young surgeons will be in English. A variety of activities are planned for young surgeons:
- pre-congress workshops in laparoscopic surgery, open surgery and team-work
- possibility of presentation of their scientific achievements during scientific sessions of the congress
- educational and “How I do it” sessions
- a quiz game for teams of residents from different centres.
A special lowered congress fee is available for residents and PhD students to enable them participation in the Conference.
All educational activities will be awarded with certificates and one young surgeon will receive a special award for the best scientific presentation. We would like to encourage teams of residents to take part in the quiz game. Teams of three residents will answer questions from general surgery, anatomy, pathophysiology, perioperative care and diagnostic imaging. The winners will be invited to the next ESS meeting which will be held in Yerevan, Armenia in 2018.
