Welcome Message by the Director of the Greek Educational Program of the Spine Society | Mr Ioannis Magras

We are very pleased to inform you that the Hellenic Spine Society has signed and agreed with the
EUROSPINE (the Spine Society of Europe) that the Greek Educational Program is from now on
equivalent to the EUROSPINE Diploma.That means that any trainee that will attend the Program for the Greek Diploma with directly acquire the EUROSPINE Diploma, at a nominal charge.
Additionally, according to this agreement, Greek Modules are recognized as equivalent to the
European Modules. Therefore, the trainee may attend some of the Modules in Greece and others in
Strasburg or any other country that has relevant equivalence and still obtain the Diploma. The Greek
Program is the only one that is held in English, except for this in Strasburg. Thus, there is the possibility
for foreign trainees to attend.
The Greek Modules for the Diploma of the Hellenic Spine Society will be held twice a year, in Thessaloniki and in Athens alternately. This gives the Hellenic Spine Society the opportunity to reduce the cost of the courses enabling also younger
colleagues to attend.
We are delighted that, after this agreement, we can offer to the Greek medical community the
opportunity to obtain European education and recognition. Every trainee can start the training with any Module they prefer.
