Dear Friends, Dear Colleagues !
Welcome to EuroHand 2017, welcome to Budapest!
In June 2017 Budapest will not only be the center of Europe but also the Capital of hand surgery and hand therapy. An outstanding scientific program including all topics of hand surgery focusing on the available evidence based data will be an excellent opportunity to refresh your knowledge. Planning a never seen large number of free papers will enhance the possibility to hand surgeons of all generations to present their cases, their results and share their experience. Joint sessions with hand therapists can build an even closer relation between surgeons and therapists. Accommodation and catering facilities of all rates will make participation affordable for everyone.
The many years of experience of the organizers guarantees a successful, unique and memorable event.
Needless to say that beside a high level scientific program the well known Hungarian hospitality, gastronomy and cultural life make your presence a must in the capital of Hungary.
Looking forward to seeing you in Budapest,
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the European Federation for Societies of Hand Therapy and both the organizing and scientific committees of the Xll EFSHT Congress I am honored to welcome you to Budapest, Hungary.
This triennial FESSH-EFSHT combined congress is organized in collaboration with the European Federation for Societies of Hand Surgery and The Hungarian Society of Hand Surgery. The therapists’ program is divided into two parts – a separate therapists’ program and a combined program with FESSH. The therapists’ program consists of keynote lectures, focus sessions and workshops to provide you with both theoretical knowledge and clinical perspectives in several topics. The main theme of the FESSH-EFSHT combined sessions will be Evidence Based hand surgery and hand therapy, where clinically relevant topics will be viewed and discussed from the current evidence point of view.
You will have the opportunity to choose your preferred topics from the concurrent programs, and with the chance of mixing both lectures and workshops, this will provide an interesting and versatile entity for therapists from different backgrounds and work settings. The extended FESSH-EFSHT combined sessions will provide the participants with interesting scientific lectures and the opportunity to deepen the collaboration and understanding between surgeons and therapists.
In addition to the compact scientific program, the social program will allow you to meet and spend time with colleagues and see beautiful Budapest. Budapest offers you a great location to combine the scientific event to culture, history, sights and urban life.
I offer you a warm welcome to the Eurohand 2017 Congress and look forward to seeing you in Budapest!
President of EFSHT
