The spirit of Fellowship Barcelona

ABOUT US

We are convinced that the best way to broaden the knowledge of surgical techniques is to be at the side of the expert surgeon while performing them, being able to even participate in them. That is why Fellowship Barcelona offers programs of in-person stays with the best specialists in each surgical area to be able to share knowledge during surgical procedures.

These stays are individually designed for each attendee, adapting the content of the program according to the required needs. In this way, an improvement in surgical knowledge is achieved, which the assistant can later apply and develop during their usual clinical practice.

For this, Fellowship Barcelona has the best surgical specialists in each specialty, selected to contribute their experience and knowledge to the assistants in the most advanced surgical techniques they use in their usual practice. With these specialists, the specific training program is designed for each attendee, adapted to the needs and requirements previously established jointly with the student.
