About congress

Dear colleagues,

The 14th Congress of the European Federation of Societies for Microsurgery will be held on May 5-8, 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia. During the Congress, joint events will be taking place to ensure an even richer scientific content. One of these Joint events is the WSRM Half Day Symposium that will take place on the first day of the Congress. As a part of the educational sessions, EMTRA (European Microsurgical Training and Research Association) Symposium and 5th IMSS (International Microsurgical Simulation Society) Meeting will be organized.

The Serbian Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery is honored to host this prestigious Congress in Belgrade. The Congress will be an unforgettable event in terms of both the Scientific Content and the networking opportunities. Beside European participants we already have confirmations from the world most famous experts.

A promise of rich Scientific content and a unique opportunity to meet old and new colleagues for a fruitful interaction awaits you in Belgrade in 2018. Until then we will be joining forces and putting our utmost efforts to make this Congress an unforgettable memory for you. We look forward to welcoming you in Belgrade,

Welcome Message of the Secretary General of EFSM

Dear EFSM Members, Dear Friends,

Our Federation consolidates through a process of maturation, which is substantially founded upon the quality and number of contributions of the member nations.

Such a contribution is brought, keeping each specific cultural makeup, within a common language and in the interest of a shared cultural and operational purpose.

Serbia is the welcome host of our XIV annual Congress and this year’s Program clearly expresses this assumption: it deals with the realizations in the field of microsurgery did by prominent European and World microsurgeons. The program, including instructional courses, panels, conferences, free papers will cover all the fields of modern microsurgery.

For the first time in the history of EFSM, a contest will be organized for residents only. There would be a best case award and a best young surgeon award.

The full realization of our Federation’s European size represents one of the most heartfelt EFSM current objectives, and happens through the harmonization of the formative processes, research, study, information and accreditation in which the Federation takes interest.

I am certain that the Congress will be rich and fruitful in each of its aspects, both scientific as convivial.

I am convinced we will have a wonderful scientific and social program.

On behalf of the EFSM Council,we will be looking forward to meet you in Belgrade.

Secretary General of EFSM,
Prof. Alexandru Georgescu
