Training and surgery courses

Few industry branches change so rapidly and show such short half-life periods in the specialist knowledge as the applications and products in the area of medicine. In order to be able to keep pace with the constantly growing progress, continuous and further education of both your clients and your own employees is necessary. The Institute for anatomy of Paracelsus Medical Private University in Salzburg offers a unique platform to this purpose. We support you in the planning, organisation and conducting of professional training and operation courses.

Our infrastructure at Paracelsus University in Salzburg offers you a comprehensive and at the same time flexible framework which supports you in your product development or makes the training of your clients in your products or techniques possible. Furthermore, here you can conduct the most modern hands-on training in small or large groups or organise seminars and workshops.
