An Exclusive 3-Day Course at the IRCAD training Centre in Strasbourg, France, May 28-30, 2018 in Strasbourg, France, to advance your knowledge and skills.
Although established over decades ago, and acknowledged as a standard in the surgical management of gynecologic cancer, laparoscopic surgery is not yet universally used, even though it represents at this point in time both a cost-effective and patient-friendly approach compared to open surgery and robotic-assisted laparoscopy.
The main obstacle is the learning curve. A number of busy university leaders, extremely skilled in open surgery, do not have the time to develop their laparoscopic skills.
The ESGO has decided to collaborate with the IRCAD in Strasbourg, France, a world famous teaching center in laparoscopic surgery, fully equipped with a high-end animal laboratory, to propose a limited number of seats in a semi-private course for European university key opinion leaders.
The theoretical part of the three day course will be organized in parallel to the well-established yearly IRCAD course on laparoscopic surgery in gynecologic oncology.
The practical part will include a live surgery demonstration session, and a hands-on animal laboratory session. A private room with 6 operating tables will host 12 participants. Four world-class laparoscopic surgery teachers will act as proctors.
As a result of the inherent limited space, the 12 participants will be selected after an application process.
After selection by the ESGO, the registration process and payment of fee will be completed with the IRCAD. The registration fee is with no financial benefit for the ESGO.
