As we all battle to Covid pandemic, the wish for educational exchange and social interaction have become stronger. Most of us have had reduced patient care and restricted social and family contacts for a long time.
We had hoped, that our announcement now would have been an invitation to a live congress in Rotterdam. The reality is unfortunately different.
On the other hand, we have put a tremendous effort in creating the best online program we can do at the moment. The time schedule has been carefully selected to provide for the participants the best educational opportunity without overloading information, as we all already have been involved in many video sessions.
The program includes many sessions of a normal live program, for example the 10 best papers session from the Journal of Hand Surgery European volume, instructional courses and the EWAS session.
As the theme of the meeting is complications in hand surgery, we will add an exciting session entitled "disasters from the masters".
In addition, we will present live surgery sessions on many hand surgery topics in a superb Cadlab and will debate on difficult to solve problems.
A newly created concept will challenge different FESSH countries to produce presentations in a so-called "Nations Competition".
In closing, we are looking forward to welcoming you all to the FESSH Online week coming June. It will be a fantastic program that will only get better with your input as participants.
