This two-day course is designed to provide surgical trainees with the technical skills required to perform the most common laparoscopic general surgical operations: cholecystectomy, appendectomy and repair of a perforated duodenal ulcer. The emphasis is on practical exercises using bench-top models. There is individual tuition and personal feedback on performance with advice for further practice.
The course fee includes all tuition, pre-course online materials and a 2-course hot lunch on both days.
The course has been agreed on an intercollegiate basis and trainees who complete the course will be issued with certification that will be reciprocally recognised by all four Royal Surgical Colleges.
