Course Introduction

Hand and wrist injuries are a frequent cause of Emergency Department visits. Many of these injuries might be seriously disabling and lead to pain and functional limitations if not treated appropriately at first. Therefore, we designed a Dutch course specifically for young doctors (ANIOS, AIOS, SEH, ORT, TRAU, PLAST) named YOUNG ESSER. This course will be divided in three evenings and will emphasize everything you need to know about the first-line treatment of hand and wrist injuries. The faculty of the courses are Expert Esser Hand Surgeons, to make sure that the highest educational quality standards are provided.  


NOTE: Course language is DUTCH.

Esser Masterclass introduced a new education principle: FAIR-TRAED (Fair Transparent Education). FAIR-TRAED means that the registration fees are directly invested in the Esser Masterclass educational materials to advance hand surgery trainings. The organisation and the faculty have a passion for hand surgery and support FAIR-TRAED which means that they do not receive any financial compensation. This enables Esser Masterclass to keep the registration fees at a minimum. Our mission is making high-quality handsurgery education accessible for every handsurgeon around the globe and our motto is training form handsurgeons to handsurgeons.
