After the huge success of two Spine boot Camps in Chennai (2017) and Kochi (2018), International Spine Academy is again geared up for the 3rd Boot Camp to be conducted in Chennai in April end 2019.
  
Boot camp is a regimented military style training, which has been translated to different areas of skills training. The methodology involves transfer of information, experience and wisdom from mentors to those seeking the unknown. The boot camp will add value by filling in the “gaps” that may exist in knowledge that is not always attained during meetings, conferences, CME programs and cadaver or live surgery courses. This wealth of information has been put together by a group of experts, along with people in the Industry to enhance skills with precision and therefore to achieve improved knowledge.
