Dear colleagues and friends,
The NSpine Winter Masterclass 2018 was another tremendous success with discussion of over 100 cases and 30 CME credits being awarded! Furthermore we were able to donate a significant profit share to the Artemed Foundation to support international projects. Find out more.
For the 2019 meeting we have changed the dates for the event to run form Wednesday to Wednesday (27 February – 6 March 2019) across the weekend.
Delegates may either participate for the whole week (cases and faculty vary) or for a half week. Accompanying persons and family are very welcome.
>> Find detailed programme here <<
We are of course aware of medtech ethical guidelines and in this respect it is important to note that delegates (and any family members) are entirely self funded. Dinners and refreshments are exclusively provided by NSpine. We are very grateful to the sponsors supporting or vision who will be contributing to the debates as partners in the learning experience.
Looking forward to see you in Arosa!
NSpine Director & Course chairman
Arriving by car
Up-to-date information is provided via www.arosa.ch.
From Chur it is about 40 minutes on road going up. The Schanfiggerstrasse winds its way through the valley and crosses over 30km and around 360 curves while climbing 1320m in elevation.
Caution: Check the current road condition, especially in winter, before setting off. A glance at the general traffic information is also recommended!
Arriving by train
The Arosa railway slowly winds its way down through Chur, past the Stadtmauer, Malteserturm and Obertor, the landmark of the Bündner capital. But the city stroll on rails does not last long. At the city boundary, the Arosa railway changes into the mountain railway and winds its way through the wild Schanfigger valley up to the well-known resort Arosa. On the only 26 km long track the train climbs over a thousand meters.
By the way, the train route Lüen-Castiel-Arosa and retour is included in the Arosa Card during the summer and in the winter it is included in the ski and hiking pass. More information about the public transport offer can be found here.
From the Friedrichshafen airport, the Graubünden Express (shuttle bus) brings you comfortably to Chur. From Zurich, the Intercity runs into the Bündner capital. From there you can easily travel with the Rhaetian Railway through the idyllic landscape all the way to Arosa.
Private aircrafts are recommended to to land in Altenrhein.
