The ‘catchy’ Utrecht Spine Course

The upcoming 5th edition of the Utrecht Spine Course is catchy, because of the 2024 edition theme ‘Spinal Infections’.

When: 22-23 March 2024

Venue: University Medical Centre Utrecht

Registration: Registration for the course will only be possible via

In this course UMCU concepts will be interactively shared for the clinical care of patients with spinal infections, both in the native and operated spine. Clinical work- up, conservative therapies and various surgical approaches will be discussed. Treatment algorithms for spinal infections will be shared to help you to treat these patients in your own hospital in the future. Next to lectures, there is ample time for case-based discussions and interaction with the faculty. For a limited group, a cadaver lab with hands- on training of different (innovative) techniques is provided on Saturday.
