4th ESRA Residents & Trainees Workshop


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.


Workshop location

Hospital das Forças Armadas, Pólo Porto

Porto University’s Simulation Center

R. Jorge de Viterbo Ferreira 228, 4050-313 Porto, Portugal

Why should I attend this meeting?

  • It gives me opportunity to learn and practice blocks which are mostly used in everyday aesthetic clinical practice on live and anatomical models.
  • It gives me unique opportunity to train management of acute and/or common complications/side effects of regional anaesthesia techniques in simulation settings – no other workshop offers this possibility!
  • Because this workshop offers best value for money education in regional anaesthesia – two days workshop led by several ESRA instructors and examiners for only 200 EUR!
  • It gives me opportunity to meet my fellow colleagues from all over Europe and enjoy wonderful Porto!
