The ESGO Advanced Course on Endoscopic Surgery in Gynaecological Oncology will be held in cooperation with the European Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) at the Policlinico A. Gemelli in Rome, Italy.
Course attendance is limited to 12 participants enabling 3 attendees to be assigned per animal model.
Confirmations will be made upon selection by the course Applications Committee.
The contingent of the course is full.
ADVANCED THEORETICAL LECTURES - PELVIC TRAINERS - 2 LIVE SURGERIES - HANDS-ON TRAINING WITH ANIMAL MODELS
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 surgeries, pelvic trainers and an exclusive lab featuring hands-on training with animal models.
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.
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.
The 3-day, clinically oriented, interactive, pelvic trainer, hands-on training course offers advanced theoretical lectures combined with video training and discussion with experts. The course is an exclusive opportunity to learn from the most experienced European surgeons.
The workshop will be held in English.
As a result of the inherent limited space, the 12 participants will be selected after an application process.
