Essentials and Intermediate Laparoscopic Surgery for Gynaecological Trainees

Attend this course along with the Hysteroscopy and Endometrial Ablation Course taking place from 2nd to 5th December 2019 for a reduced total fee of £1000 (save 10%), please complete both registration forms.

We have developed an intensive, four-day course focusing on the key skills to intermediate level required for safe laparoscopic practice in gynaecology. The course has been carefully designed to maximize hands-on experience whilst in our centre. The course is equally suitable for the junior surgeon starting out in minimal access surgery and for the more senior  surgeon who is  either new to laparoscopy or wishes to refresh their key skills. Ample time for trainees to interact and discuss with experts of subject areas and close supervision from experts during hands-on practical sessions are provided.
