Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

It is a great honour and pleasure to announce the FESSH Academy 2019.

One of the most important statuary missions of FESSH is to harmonize the hand surgical knowledge and its training across Europe. Since more than twenty years FESSH is the provider of certification with the European Board Hand Surgery Examination, but not of education.

The FESSH Academy should fill this gap being directed to in training young hand surgeons with the aim to cover most of the topics of hand surgery and provide a good basis for further developments.

The programme has been prepared by Dr David Schewring and Dr Jonathan Hobby with a large faculty of European experts. A representative of the new born group of the Young European Hand Surgeons was also involved to make the Academy more attractive and useful for the younger. A big effort has been also done to keep the fee low and to make it affordable to as many young surgeons as possible.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Budapest.



 

Maurizio Calcagni
Secretary General of FESSH
