A master update meeting is held every 5 years
to discuss new techniques and to present new developments.

After 6 editions of the MRM, we prepeared on October 2016, a updated symposium on reconstructive microsurgery just for former students, faculty and the medical industry involved in microsurgery to meet and share new ideas, discuss how to improve medical education in microsurgery and promote innovation and interaction between the medical industry and professionals.

We were highly honored by the presence of Prof Isao Koshima such us honorary guest speaker at the updated symposium.

What we really wanted to do is to improve this networking and build a real Reconstructive Microsurgery European School-RMES. We would like to focus, not only education but also on how we can get best develop our plastic surgeons trainees. We proposed to build a research platform or community where we can all share our projects and promote multicentre interuniversity project research.

The meeting was held in Hotel Camiral a beautiful place in Caldes de Malavella, Girona, near the Dalí Museum (Figueres) and the Costa Brava beaches.
