It is the only course in Belgium to be endorsed by the International Fluid Academy and has previously been accredited by the EACCME for 9 points. The course is inclusive of all course materials, food and drinks at the University Hospital Brussels, Auditorium Kiekens, Laarbeeklaan 101, 1090 Jette, Belgium.
