The primary purpose of this course is to provide course topics that will be illustrated with a detailed real-world case, discussing analysis and treatment options faced in the clinic. All cases will be approached in the context of a local setting, keeping available resources in mind but including new developments and research.
Audience participation will be encouraged live in the lectures and with online polling. Two sessions will be dedicated to cases send in by course participants and discussed by the participants and faculty panel.
