Microsurgical education has an involuting role in the respects both of the effective clinical and successful research work. In Hungarian literature little number of paper can be found that deal with microsurgical educational methods, their results and efficacy. In our department for several decades we have taught the basics of microsurgery at different education levels (graduate and postgraduate), giving the possibility for practicing and developing as well. In this paper we summarize our educational objective and subjective experiences of more than 10 years and 5460 education hours in microsurgical basic courses. Besides the numeric summaries it became clear that the teacher's or tutor's and the candidates' experience and their ability to attain the basics of microsurgery are very important. According to our experience the most effective method is the education in small groups: one tutor and 2-3 candidates can reach the final goal, the basic microsurgical skill.
