Lasers and light sources, along with other complementary technologies, play a prominent role in the diagnostic and, fundamentally, therapeutic arsenal in all medical-surgical specialties. However, there is a shortage of courses specifically aimed at training physicians in the physical, technological, instrumental, clinical and healthcare bases related to the use of lasers, especially in private medicine.
The Course of Laser Applications in Medicine and Surgery: Physical, Technological, Instrumental, Clinical and Healthcare Bases from Nebrija University presents a series of contents of interest to doctors and surgeons who already have experience in the instrumental use of laser, but wish to expand their knowledge on this subject for professional development in this area.

There are a number of medical and surgical specialties in which lasers have an important application (Ophthalmology, Gynecology, Urology, Pulmonology, Oncology, Spinal Surgery and Traumatology, and Otorhinolaryngology, among many others).
Various treatments with the application of laser technology are carried out exclusively in private medical practices and are not covered by public medicine. This has generated an important medical-health sector with an industrial component of equipment, pharmaceutical industry and services, with great economic value. Many medical professionals have oriented their professional activity in this sector.
