Please note that for all participants there will be the possibility (for free!) to have 3 practical days during the year, directly in the hospital (HUG), completely dedicated to practice. There will be some courses’ Directors and Tutors, which will be fully available, in accordance with the rules of the hospital and the Department, to be able to perform echos at patient bedside. These days will be available during the Congress and are reserved exclusively to the participants.
