During 2013, ten surgeons among the candidates who want to participate in the Basic Microsurgery Courses organised by the Reconstructive Microsurgery Society will be chosen by the Emergency Hand Care and Microsurgery Society. The course registration fees of these 10 surgeons (2000.00 TL for each individual) will be covered by the Foundation.
The increasing demand for the microsurgery education can not be answered with national means. The basic microsurgical training options were evaluated internationally, and the Microsurgery Course of Zurich was chosen. The foundation will cover the fees of two candidates for December 2012, and 24 candidates (2 surgeons per month) for the year 2013. The course registration fee of each individual (1000 Swiss Franks; approximately 2000.00 TL), and the accommodation fee for six nights (approximately 2000.00 TL), a total of 4000.00 TL will be covered by the Foundation.
