Newsletter December 2011

We bid you a warm welcome to our December 2011 Newsletter. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year. Coming up in January, new developments are underway. Watch this space!

We are publishing 17 new videos featuring different surgical procedures in different specialties, 1 new critical analysis in laparoscopic colorectal surgery, and 11 new lectures.

We are aso releasing 4 brand-new HD videos available for download for only 9.95€ (14.95$) per video.

  IRCAD shapes up for a revolution in the learning experience creating a vibrant multimedia iPad journal in synch with cutting-edge technologies for continuing medical education.
A new title, a new look, a new quarterly format - and, we hope, the best of the IRCAD heritage: with this inaugural issue, the editorial team launches a journal with a history and profile unique in the discipline.
