Firenze - Giugno 2009

Si è svolto a Firenze, nei giorni 8 e 9 giugno nella prestigiosa sede di Villa La Pietra, il primo dei corsi monotematici di aggiornamento riservato amedici specializzandi in neurologia, iscritti alla Sin.

Il Corso, che aveva come contenuto la Neurologia delle Emergenze – Urgenze, ha visto la presenza di 46 giovani neurologi provenienti da tutta Italia che hanno potuto interagire direttamente con i relatori e tutor in una ottica di sinergie profonde.

I partecipanti hanno mostrato vivo interesse e hanno gradito l’iniziativa SIN, che sarà ripetuta con il prossimo appuntamento previsto a Roma nel mese di novembre.
