How I do it

The annual "How I do it" at the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital is particularly popular and highly recommended. The "How I do it", or HIDI for short, is a one-day training course that takes place on a Saturday in the fall in Lucerne. Organized by the Forum Young Surgeons, the training consists of lectures on general surgery in the morning and two separate rooms in the afternoon with a focus on visceral surgery and traumatology.
