Fetal and Neonatal Endoscopic Surgery

Inspired by the well-documented benefits of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in adults and children, the XXI century started launching the advantages of MIS to newborns.
In this sequence, the MIS program from University of Minho proposes an advanced hands-on course in Fetal and Neonatal Endoscopic Surgery in order to provide its participants a theoretical update in the most recent developments in fetal and neonatal endoscopic surgery and, simultaneously, an extensive hands-on training to learn-doing in anesthetized experimental small animals using 3 mm instruments.

Fundamentals in Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that has developed at a great rhythm in the last decade. With a very high technical component, this hands-on course is a great opportunity for orthopedic residents training on realistic and well-designed arthroscopic models.

Basic Laparoscopy for Residents

We prepared this hands-on course specially design for residents. Having in mind a low-cost laparoscopic course, basic minimally invasive techniques will be taught both in theoretical and in practical sessions.

Applied Clinical Psychopharmacology

The activities of the summer course will include two distinct methodological approaches: 1. Seminars: seminars by renowned speakers will focus on the major topics in the programme of the course. 2. Interactive Clinical Cases: interactive clinical cases sessions will allow the application of the concepts addressed in the seminars in specific clinical situations based in real-life clinical experience. In these sessions, the participants will be organized in groups, will be supervised by faculty members and will present and discuss each clinical case.
