Modern, hospitable facility for your surgery training

Surgery Training

The development of new therapies, techniques and medical devices implies the need for training of its users prior to moving to the clinical setting.

Theoretical courses and simulator trainings are very valuable; however, there is a missing link of reality. Hands-on practical sessions on anaesthetized large animals provide the perfect clinical setting for interventional training of specialists.

The facilities of Medanex Clinic are ideally suited to organize a combination of theoretical and practical (parallel) training sessions for medical doctors as well as veterinarians.
