ESRA designed this workshop for anaesthesiology residents who want to get started or want to improve in the art of regional anaesthesia, PoCUS and peri-operative medicine.
At a very attractive price (200€) and in one of Europe’s most vibrant cities, residents and young specialists can experience a totally renovated program: dynamic, appealing and exciting filled with problem-based learning presentations, live demonstrations and hands-on sessions on basic and advanced regional blocks, simulation in emergency situations and common complications associated with regional anaesthesia, as well as special PoCUS hands-on workshops.
Get your study leave and book your flight and accommodation early. It can be difficult to get an accommodation in Porto for those dates!
