Hernia Masterclass Webinar Series
The British Hernia Society is delighted to partner with the RCS Edinburgh Surgical Specialty Board in General Surgery in our first ‘Hernia Masterclass Webinar Series’ focussing on the state-of-the-art management of hernias. This series has been carefully designed to take the participants through essential aspects of hernia management covering anatomy, surgical strategies, operative techniques and ‘dealing with difficult cases’.
This series will be suitable for general surgeons at all stages of career. We are particularly keen to encourage surgical trainees in UK and internationally to attend this series. The RCSEd Surgical Specialty Board is committed to address the training needs of our surgical trainees whose training has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
