Set up ex nihilo by the medical faculties of Nancy (Meurthe-et-Moselle), Hombourg (Saarland) and Liège, in partnership with the Center François Baclesse, Luxembourg specialist in radiotherapy and oncology, the European project ChirEx is working hard to make up for the delay caused by the health crisis on its ambitious training program. Only about forty of the sixty educational sessions initially planned were able to take place, always face-to-face and all based on simulation.

With a budget of 4.5 million euros and extended until the end of the year, this Interreg Greater Region project which includes Lorraine, Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Luxembourg and Wallonia, has enabled 500 healthcare personnel from the four countries to discover the practices of their neighbours. Among the training courses developed are introductions to robotics and exercises in laparoscopy on simulators offered by the University Hospital of Nancy, the techniques of the Institute of Experimental Clinical Surgery of the University of Saarland in terms of traumatology, orthopedics and gynecology or those of the CHRU and the University of Liège in digestive surgery and radiotherapy.
