Testimonial Dr. Emilie Zhu, physician assistant, CHUV Visceral Surgery Department

"This is a very interesting course for young residents (2nd-3rd year). The course deals with medical emergencies in the post-operative context and is extremely helpful for the management of surgical patients. The course days are well divided between theoretical and practical sessions. The practical workshops take place in small groups, which allows for good interaction with the instructors. The situational examples are excellent for learning. Highly recommended course!"
