On November 28, 2019, Professor Jacques Marescaux received the 2019 Franco-Brazilian Personality of the Year Prize awarded by the France-Brazil Chamber of Commerce in Rio de Janeiro, in front of an audience of 500 people from the Franco-Brazilian economic world.

Professor Marescaux was rewarded for his action in the service of economic dynamism in the field of surgery in Brazil. Thanks to its presence in Barretos in the State of São Paulo since 2011 and in Rio de Janeiro since 2017, IRCAD has been able to attract a network of industrial partners, giants in the field of minimally invasive surgery, to Brazil. In parallel, a Research and Development team has been created in Barretos to promote and accelerate minimally invasive surgery technology transfer.

His pioneering vision of surgery and his desire to disseminate the best surgical techniques to surgeons around the world, and in particular to Brazilian surgeons, were applauded. More than 11,000 surgeons have already been trained at IRCAD’s two mirror institutes in Brazil since 2011.

Professor Marescaux’s action was solemnly welcomed by Mr. Nour Bouhassoun, President of the France-Brazil Chamber of Commerce and President of Michelin South America, which employs no less than 8,500 people. It should be noted that France is the leading foreign investor in Brazil, with more than 500,000 jobs in French companies operating in the country.

Each year, the Franco-Brazilian Personality of the Year Award honors a French or Brazilian personality who has contributed to the development of relations between the two countries in the socio-economic, political, environmental, media, cultural, philanthropic or scientific fields.

COVID19: IRCAD sanitary measures & health pass

Please note that the IRCAD administrative board and staff are closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation, in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations in France. The health, safety, and well-being of our participants, experts and staff are our top priority!
Despite the current context, the IRCAD stands firmly by your side to help you acquire knowledge and skills. Come and join us !

We would like to draw your attention that the « Vaccine Pass » is now mandatory in France since end of January 2022 and replaces the former « Health Pass » to access places that are open to the public, such as cinemas, museums, cafés and restaurants, hotels as well as the IRCAD Institute which welcomes participants in the framework of its courses and seminars. Thus, a PCR test without vaccination is no longer sufficient to take part in our courses.

The vaccine pass includes a proof of the following (one of the 3 items is sufficient):

  • The vaccination certificate, proving that persons have a complete vaccination (as of January 15, 2022, all persons aged 18 and over must receive a booster dose no more than 7 months after their last injection or Covid infection to receive a valid vaccination pass. As of February 15, 2022, the time limits for keeping the pass will be reduced, you will have to do your booster dose 4 months and no longer 7 months after your 2nd dose to have a complete vaccine schedule and maintain a valid vaccine pass)
  • The result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting to the recovery of Covid, more than 11 days and less than 4 months
  • The certificate of contraindication to vaccination

Further information about the new vaccine pass can be found at :

We very much hope to be able to count on your kind understanding of those rules which have been set by the French Government and which our Institute is required to apply
