Basic Endo-Gynae Laparoscopic Training
The aim of this course is to allow practicing surgeons as well as residents/fellows and medical students to acquire basic level skills in laparoscopic gynecology including hands-on simulation-based training of essential OB-GYN procedures.
The course is designed in two components:
1. Proficiency-Based Basic Laparoscopic Skills Training Training within a proficiency-based virtual reality curriculum may reduce errors during real surgical procedures. The basic skills training within this curriculum is based on Development of a Virtual Reality Training Curriculum for Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy. The aim of the training curriculum is for an individual to acquire skills and reach a predetermined level of proficiency before progressing to more challenging cases. The curriculum clearly defines a predetermined level of proficiency as well as defining the mode of training on the simulator.
2. Basic Gynecological Procedure Training – Personal Goal Setting 7 patient cases: Laparoscopic tubal sterilization, salpingostomy, salpingectomy and salpingooophorectomy. Trainees encounter a range of patient pathologies and gain experience with various techniques and surgical instruments. Included are a variety of complications and emergency situations such as bleeding at the implantation site, a ruptured fallopian tube and a blood-filled abdominal cavity.
