Following the opening ceremony, a two-day training seminar was conducted by three doctors from the Fetal Medicine Foundation, focusing on the practical application of new methods for prenatal care and fetal medicine. The theoretical part of the seminar was attended by 200 gynecologists/obstetricians, while 48 doctors attended the hands-on practical training session.
