Pre-Congress Course 5: Train the Trainer Preparatory Course

The course is designed for GESEA certified MIG Surgeons interested to become instructors. Minimum requirement GESEA Level 1 certification.

Learning Objectives: GESEA certified, minimally invasive surgeons will be guided how validation is performed for their abilities to teach the GESEA principles. The way to guide the trainees how to handle and use the instruments in both hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. Their communication skills and abilities to adapt to new circumstances will also be challenged.

The course will be limited to 20 participants.


Pre-Congress Course 6: Nurses/Midwives

The course is designed for operating room nurses wanted to increase their knowledge in the field of endoscopic surgery. The course will be divided in a theoretical part with a thorough and well-prepared scientific program, power point presentations and videos to help participants to understand and learn quickly the principles and the procedures of correct assistance in endoscopic surgery. Experts in instruments and equipment management will teach and provide information and guidelines in cleaning maintenance and sterilization.

The second part of the course will teach the nurses how to use several devices essential for MIS.

All participants will learn the instruments / equipment and they will practice the instruments preparation and the setup as needed in the OR. They will also assist as instrumentalists and running nurses for the most frequent endoscopic interventions in gynaecological surgeries.

The course will be limited to 16 participants.


Pre-Congress Course 7: Robotics

Course type
Especially designed for residents and gynecologists interested in Robotic assisted laparoscopy.

Course description
The objective of this course is to provide the basic knowledge of the robotic surgery and to show robotic surgical technique in different benign and malignant gynecological diseases. After a video session, participant will perform basic surgical exercises on virtual platforms and follow robotic anatomical cadaveric dissection in a parallel room.

Learning objectives

  • Overview of robotic platforms and potential indication for robotic assisted laparoscopy
  • Surgical technique
  • Virtual platform exercises with subjective and objective evaluation by the Faculty

Target audience
Gynaecologists, Residents and Doctors interested to Robotic surgery

The course will be limited to 12 participants.
