With the evolution of gynecological surgery, the gold-standard approach for most procedures is laparoscopic surgery. However, the rate of minimally invasive approaches in major procedures in most Africa countries including Uganda is less than 5%. Performing laparoscopic procedures requires special skills. Thus, didactic, practical courses represent the most valuable tool required to improve surgical techniques, develop the necessary psychomotor abilities, and become comfortable with the equipment.
This course is thus, designed to provide the participants with the required knowledge of Laparoscopy and psychomotor skills as well as practice the procedure on animal models in order to apply the learned techniques to live surgery.
This course is aimed at the acquisition and improvement of the laparoscopic techniques for dissection and suturing which is particularly difficult for surgeons new to this type of procedure.
Upon successful completion of this course it is expected that the participant will be able to:
This course is designed for obstetricians/gynaecologists or general surgeons, gynaecologists, residents/fellows in Obstetrics and Gynecology or experienced senior medical officers with prior experience or training in the performance of abdomino-pelvic surgery with an interest in laparoscopy.
This 4-day, clinically oriented, interactive, hands-on training course offers advanced lectures complemented hands-on activities and discussion with experts.
