TACS Education Activities

In addition to delivering exceptional patient care, we are also committed to education and continuous learning for both our team members and hospital staff.

We believe that ongoing education is crucial for providing the best possible care to our patients and for keeping our team up-to-date on the latest best practices and techniques.

To support this goal, we offer a range of in-hospital educational activities, including lectures, grand rounds, simulation training, and case presentations. These educational opportunities allow our team to deepen their knowledge and skills, and they also provide a forum for sharing ideas and best practices with colleagues.
