21ST TRIPARTITE MEETING
The 21ST TRIPARTITE MEETING will take place in Basel on 7TH–8TH March 2024. Save the Date!
Join us at the Tripartite Meeting for Minimally Invasive Surgery (Dreiländertreffen MIS) taking place on March 7TH and 8TH, 2024, at the Mövenpick Hotel in Basel, Switzerland.
This brilliant event is dedicated to the realm of Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), encompassing the cutting-edge fields of laparoscopic and robotic surgery, education, and emerging technologies within MIS.
Our primary objective with the Tripartite Meeting is to foster the community among MIS surgeons hailing from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, encouraging them to engage in lively discussions regarding the most recent techniques and scientific breakthroughs within their specialty. In the spirit of European collaboration, we are delighted to extend our invitation to participants and speakers from all across Europe. To accommodate the multilingual fabric of Switzerland, we have chosen English as the official conference language.
The Tripartite Meeting in MIS promises a dynamic, in-person gathering with approximately 200 attendees expected. Our diverse audience will predominantly comprise highly skilled surgeons and surgical residents. However, our event is open to the public, and it’s worth noting that one of our keynote speakers boasts a strong background in robotics, adding an exciting dimension that may attract individuals beyond the traditional surgical community. We look forward to your presence at this exceptional event.
