Interactive Webinars

We have developed a diverse interactive webinar programme that will cover topical laparoscopic areas. Speakers are experts in their specific field. Talks are moderated by SASES exco members, and all will be open for live discussion.

Email and SMS reminders are sent out to remind members. Please diarise these dates and put a reminder on your phone.

It is easy to enter a webinar and see previous webinars: Webinar Page
