It is the aim of PSSB to provide an excellent, realistic, and fruitful learning environment for all participants. Small groups of two participants are introduced to the different techniques by personal instructors. The course strongly relies on hands-on demonstrations using whole-head cadaveric specimens. Live lectures and demonstrations cover the theoretical background of the subjects taught. The program of this course includes live surgerieshands-on dissection sessions, and podium presentations by Swiss and international faculty. The official language of the course is English.
