Inter University Post Graduate Education in Surgery (IUPGES)

The inter university post graduate courses are organised each year by the 4 flemish universities (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Universiteit Gent, Universiteit Antwerpen & Vrije Universiteit Brussel). Courses are aimed at flemish surgical trainees and are in preparation of the residents’ second and sixth year exam. Courses are organised alternatively for junior (1st-2nd year) and senior (4th-5th year) residents.
