International School of Experimental Microsurgery

Εκτυπώσιμη μορφή

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 Experimental Medicine and Practical Aptitudes, invites you between the 23rd and the 30th of July 2017, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, to spend 6 unforgettable days learning about experimental microsurgery, making new friends and discovering a city with almost 2000 years of history!


Skip endless, tedious, theoretical classes; come and see the world from a different perspective: through the surgical microscope. This is the best chance for medical students to develop skills that are both useful and mandatory for a future resident/surgeon whose practice includes microsurgery or for someone who flirts with research that includes experimental surgery. This summer project offers a relaxed, yet professional working atmosphere, that will allow students to fulfill their educational goals but also to get to know other colleagues from international medical centers, to work as a team, to build long-lasting friendships, that will eventually lead to greater affiliation between universities and why not, to setting the foundation for future national and international projects.


Key points:

• hands on- microsurgical experience

• research steps - Why? When? How?

• more than 20 hours of working under surgical microscope

• best chance for students to try microsurgery



• Anatomy bases of animals used in experimental research;

• Anesthetic techniques;

• Drug administration methods;

• Biological sample collection;

• Preservation and monitoring of experimental animals;

• Ethics, Statistics and Research;

• Microsurgery basics:

o surgical microscope;

o special microsurgery instruments;

o microsurgical knots;

o microsurgical sutures.

• Vascular and nerve anastomosis on biological material.


Not to mention, all of the activities will take place in a professional and friendly environment!
