ESGO/ESGE Advanced Course on Endoscopy in Gynaecological Oncology

Overview

» Advanced theoretical lectures - pelvic trainers - 2 live surgeries - hands-on training with animal     models

» Learn from and listen to the most experienced European surgeons!

» An opportunity to acquire the GESEA Bachelor in Endoscopy!

 

Europe has a long tradition of endoscopic surgery that we strive to continue. Nevertheless, even though laparoscopy has been established for decades as a cost-effective and patient-friendly approach compared to open surgery and robotic-assisted laparoscopy, it is not yet universally used in gynaecological oncology.

The increasing use of treatment integration and new biological drugs in gynaecologic oncology make endoscopy a valuable tool for the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

In this course, laparoscopic gynaecologic oncologic surgeons will demonstrate the objective measurable theoretical knowledge and practical skills necessary when performing such procedures. The course programme features advanced theoretical lectures, live surgery, pelvic trainers and an exclusive lab featuring hands-on training with animal models.

The course will include the assessment of knowledge and practical skills for the GESEA Level 1 Certification.

 

Target Audience

The ideal profile of the course candidate is an experienced gynaecological oncologist who is both looking to improve the use of laparoscopy for complex oncological cases and fluent in English.

 

Learning Objectives 

The course aims to provide participants the technical expertise they need with regard to equipment and approaches used for different pathologies as well as exercises for acquiring and testing laparoscopic psychomotor skills.
