IPSO Surgical Oncology Courses

The IPSO surgical oncology course has been held at a number international venues around the world, and is gaining a great reputation. In 2013 IPSO paediatric surgical oncology courses were held at the annual EUPSA meeting in Leipzig, and during the WOFAPS meeting in Berlin. In 2014 there was a course at the EUPSA meeting in Dublin. If you want further information, or if you are considering inviting the faculty to run a course in your country, contact information can be found on the courses link.

Holding a child's hands represents the care, trust and responsibility that underpins the relationship between the children's surgeon and the patient
