Case study presentation & discussion

Tutorial & Module Completed
What participants say about our Spine Tutorials
I think that this was an excellent event and a very well structured tutorial. It was absolutely fantastic to have a peer-to-peer discussion with the professor and other colleagues and have access to invaluable knowledge and in-depth feedback from one of the Grand Masters. I would recommend this program to all surgeons seeking to have an in depth discussion with the Master while having the chance to pick his brains when it comes to presenting one’s own cases.
This has been a most rewarding experience, and it is a great way to summarise and consolidate the learning from the module! Preparing the cases is a pain, it is true, but this tutorial was superb beyond my expectations.
The quality and value of the Case Study group discussions was very good.
I find group tutorials very interesting, inspiring and give extra boost.
The use of technology was excellent, we learnt a lot without any interruption, for me it was very much encouraging.
