IMPORTANTNOTICE

Dear Friend,

3rd Flap reconstruction course on cadaver is postponed to October 15th – 17th, 2020 – please mark your calendars!

Please note that this postponement is a fully equivalent replacement for the planned event originally scheduled on March 2020. It goes without saying that registration fees for the event will remain in place for the new course date.

After a careful evaluation of the spreading corona-virus (COVID-19) epidemic, and considering the recent statements issued by the Health Ministry in Spain and the related evolving world-wide restrictions and crisis, we were forced to make this decision.

Above all, we have analysed the Spanish Health authorities recommendations for medical events and came to the conclusion that we are not in a position to fulfil their requirements and guarantee a safe course for our participants.

The safety, health and well-being of our students will always be the highest priority for us. We would like to express our sincere thanks to our participants for their understanding, continuous support and flexibility.

Please rest assured that in this unprecedented situation, the entire RMES & BSM team is doing its best to respond to any query at the earliest possible time.Yours sincerely,

Jaume Masià
Course director
