Does surgery sound appealing to you? 
Do you want to know more and try some procedures yourself? 
Do you want to make international friends and have a better perspective when it comes to choosing your specialty?


If so, we might be the answer to your questions!


The Romanian Students' Surgical Society (SSCR), Cluj-Napoca Branch, in collaboration with the “Iuliu Hațieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy Cluj-Napoca and the Center for Practical Aptitudes and Simulation in Medicine, invites you between the 14th and the 21st of July 2017, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, to spend 8 unforgettable days learning about surgery, making new friends and discovering a city with almost 2000 years of history!


You will have the opportunity to learn and to put into practice advanced surgical skills that can help you make better decisions regarding your future specialty since you will be familiarized with a lot of procedures and it will also help you determine whether surgery is suitable for you or not. You will start with a basic skills review in order to refresh your memory and afterwards we will help you acquire knowledge and skills in the field of:

- vascular surgery;
- digestive surgery;
- plastic and reconstructive surgery;
- urology;
- laparoscopic surgery - with simulators and pelvi-trainers, helping you gain real hands-on training.


Finally, you will also acquire some useful skill-sets pertaining not only to a surgeon but to a clinician as well, including:
- catheterizations,
