Visit of Burmese Neurosurgeons to Switzerland


In April 2013 Swiss Neurosurgeons International organised and financed an educational visit of Burmese neurosurgeons to Switzerland. Professor Myat Thu, Chief neurosurgeon from Yangon General Hospital visited with members of his team the University Hospital in Bern to experience Swiss state-of-the-art neurosurgery in an academic setting. The visit provided an opportunity to transfer instruments and to organise further educational fellowships of young Burmese neurosurgeons to Switzerland.
