As previous years, the Thursday Presidential ceremony and the Friday Plenary session will be dedicated to the congress’ theme.

The ‘Trainer-Trainee’ clinical case session will of course be part of the programme. The selection of the cases will be performed by the BAST in collaboration with the Scientific Committee of the RBSS.

Moreover, the possibility will be offered to submit a free paper, poster or video for participation in a special “Awards Session” honouring not only the best free paper, but also the best poster and the best video.

The rules will be published on the website.

The Belgian Surgical week is really important, not only for trainees, but also for every senior member of the R.B.S.S., giving all of us the opportunity to share her/his experience and offering everyone a good opportunity for discussion.
