Tuition fee

The tuition fees amount to:

  • 1250 euros for surgeons
  • 850 euros for surgical assistants (from 4th year).  A maximum of 15 assistants will be accepted per course.
  • A number of registrations are reserved for MSF personnel.


The tuition fees cover the registration at UCLouvain, the university coordinating the program, access to the classes and infrastructure, coffee breaks, midday meals and course materials.

It is possible to only take certain modules as an observer.  This status enables you to take certain course modules but gives limited access to the practical exercises and does not allow you to sit the evaluation test.

The number of spaces as observer is limited to 10 per course module.  In order to register as an observer please complete the adhoc form.  
Persons who come to observe the course, shall be asked to pay a contribution towards the tuition fees of €50 per half-day of the course.   Midday meals are not included in these tuition fees.
