Webinars over Internet

Predvideli smo da se svakog trećeg četvrtka u mesecu, sa početkom u 12 časova, stručnoj i naučnoj neurološkoj javnosti Srbije obrate naši eminentni stručnjaci i predavači sa temama koje su aktuelne i koje zaokupljaju neurološku profesionalnu i istraživačku znatiželju kod nas i u svetu.
Webinari će se održavati u formi kratkih predavanja (20 minuta sa dodatnih 5 minuta za pitanja) u kojoj će auditorijum sačinjavati lekari na specijalizaciji na našoj klinici. Details on this link.
