Endoscopic techniques are becoming more and more interesting for gynaecological surgeons, and endoscopic surgery is emerging as the gold-standard approach compared to open surgery. Every surgeon practicing today needs to understand the principles and fundamentals of endoscopic surgery in Gynaecology and avoid compromises and complications. However, analysing surveys in most African countries, the rate of minimally invasive approaches in major procedures rarely exceeds 4% compared to 20% in European countries. Teaching and training are needed not only to improve these data, but mainly to standardize the surgical techniques and their outcomes.
The course will provide the participants with the required knowledge of laparoscopy, hysteroscopy and psychomotor skills as well as practice the procedure on animal models in order to apply the learned techniques to live surgery. The curriculum of this course features advanced theoretical lectures, live surgeries, instructional videos and an exclusive lab featuring hands-on training on animal models aimed at the acquisition and improvement of the endoscopic techniques for dissection and suturing, learning the different surgical techniques, develop the necessary psychomotor abilities, and become comfortable with the equipment.
The main objective of this course is to provide the participants with the required knowledge of endoscopy and psychomotor skills as well as practice the procedure on animal models in order to apply the learned techniques to live surgery. Specific objectives include;
At the conclusion of the educational activity, participants should be able to:
