25th EFORT annual Congress

Your profession ambitions to be ahead - AI and DEI!

Discover how we have included Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Diversity-Equity-Inclusion (DEI) topics in the EFORT Congress 2024 programme to elevate your surgical practice.

We understand the importance of staying at the forefront of advancements in the field, which is why our program is meticulously crafted to offer tangible value without unnecessary hype.

Finding the right balance took us on a journey focusing on the pattern below before including the topics in the final programme grid:

Relevance to Surgical Excellence

Discuss topics directly impacting your daily work, from cutting-edge techniques to emerging technologies

Expert Insight, Surgeon to Surgeon

Engage with leading surgeons, researchers, and experts who share real-world insights and practical wisdom derived from their own experiences in the operating room.

Diverse Perspectives, Unified Goals

Explore a spectrum of viewpoints, from different surgical specialties to interdisciplinary collaborations.

Contextual Understanding

Gain a holistic perspective, understanding its implications within the broader surgical landscape and how it directly impacts your daily practice.

Ethical Compass

Participate in discussions guided by ethical principles, ensuring that every aspect of our program upholds the highest standards of professionalism and integrity.
