Kosova College of Surgeons has created different awards, which we give at each annual Congress, to honor the personalities who laid the foundations of surgery in our country, as well as those who continue to contribute to the development of surgery in various ways.
The Awards consist of:
–Lifetime Achievement Award “Prof. Dr. Sami Haxhibeqiri” – This award is given to honor the extraordinary contribution of certain individuals in advancing science, practice, and surgery in Kosova.
