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. 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. 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. Teaching Format 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.
