Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.
Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from Nordic countries. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.

Learning objectives
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:

1.A deep understanding of the surgical stress response with special emphasis on the pathophysiological mechanisms leading to clinical outcomes.
2.A deep understanding research methodologies in perioperative PhD projects.
3.An understanding of tissue healing in relation to surgery and the impact of the surgical stress response on this.
4.An understanding of organ related and patient related factors affecting pathophysiology in the perioperative period.
5.In depth insights into strengths and weaknesses of different designs of PhD

Content
This 3 day PhD course in surgical pathophysiology will be directed towards giving PhD students an insight to basic mechanisms underlining perioperative pathophysiology. Through description of basic biological and physiological changes in relation to surgery the PhD students will gain a deep insight in the understanding of most important factors affecting variation in relation to surgery. Through a discussion of research methodologies in the area of surgical pathophysiology the PhD student will gain insight into optimal research design related to assessment and examination of physiological and clinical outcomes in relation to surgery. A special emphasis will be put on demonstration of important aspects of surgical pathophysiology through description of pain models, in depth discussion of tissue healing both in the acute and the chronic phase after surgery and understanding of the mechanisms leading to complications after surgery. The PhD students will be participating actively in discussions with leading experts in these areas with respect of research methodologies in surgical pathophysiology and will gain special insight into subcategories of patients and specific topics regarding organ dysfunction related to surgery.
The PhD course is therefor divided in a classical dry lab setting with presentation of core subjects in the morning hours and after lunch there will be a daily presentation of specific topics by leading experts and discussion of the PhD study participants projects through presentation from the PhD student and discussion with the rest of the study group.
The PhD course in surgical pathophysiology aims towards a generic approach to factors affecting patients and generic aspects regarding research methodology in surgical pathophysiology thus without focusing on one specific patient category or one specific research methodology. The course is therefor designed towards attracting PhD students that are involved in patients undergoing surgery including ophthalmology, ENT surgery, general surgery, vascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, plastic surgery, urological surgery. Therefor a generic approach also includes having specific introductions and descriptions of anesthesiological factors in relation to surgery. For subgroups of patients there will be special emphasis for factors in particular importance for the oncological patients and the geriatric patient as generic examples of a larger patient group with certain both pathophysiological and research methodological aspects.

Participants
The targeted group of this course is PhD students that are involved in research in the perioperative period including anesthesia and surgery with special interest in surgical pathophysiology and research methodologies. A major emphasis is placed on understanding clinical research methodologies and in addition tio this also translational research methodologies.
