Oro-maxillofacial and Plastic Surgery


Knowledge creates healing

Microsurgery training

Training Course in Micro-Surgery for Medical Students
Duration: 2 hours per week during the semester (Friday, 14:15 – 16:00 and 16:15 – 18:00)

Course profile:
Many special areas in medicine require micro-surgical training for the surgical treatment of patients. Micro-surgical techniques and operations are often required in oral and maxillofacial surgery, neurosurgery and plastic surgery. Micro-surgical operations are also carried out in the fields of gynecology, urology, orthopaedics, ENT medicine as well as pediatric surgery.

Medical students’ training tends to focus on theoretical principles as well their application in examination courses at the patient’s bedside. Surgical suturing courses are usually taken by students on an extra-curricular basis, but micro-surgical courses, however, are mostly only available to doctors during their specialist training, or later. The foundations for learning these techniques however are constant practice under leadership and the sound teaching of skills, using the instruments, tissue and microscope correctly.

Course Programme:

Participating students are trained step-by-step and on an individual basis, to enable them to learn the essential micro-surgical techniques in practice. Within the course’s framework, practical aspects of micro-surgery are focused on. Theoretical contents are dealt with relatively briefly and in compact form.


Participants should register for the course by email addressed to the course supervisor, stating matriculation number, telephone number, number of completed semesters.
