ESRA designed this workshop for anaesthesiology residents who want to get started in the art of regional anaesthesia.
At a very attractive price and in one of Europe’s most vibrant cities, beginners can learn basic anatomy and regional blocks with hands-on sessions and simulation in emergency situations and common complications associated with regional anaesthesia.
Get your study leave and book your flight and accommodation early, because this year you can also participate in the most important annual Porto’s celebration of São João that will happen days after the workshop.
