Why is this course unique?

Anna Olejnik | Current fellow GS in Bruges

" [...] I felt great and astonished about the atmosphere of the meetings and after work gatherings organized during evening hours. It felt rather more like family meetings than a working and learning course. I am looking forward to being part of such meetings in the future and strongly recommend SORG Academy to those who wish to become the best of the best surgeons taught by the best. It has been one of the finest tuition courses in my learning process."
