Theoretical & hands-on course, aimed at junior and senior trainees

We are delighted to offer this two-day course in the unique facilities provided by the SFITS, allowing surgeons of all levels to benefit from this formal theoretical teaching, and to have the opportunity to exercise on a wide range of carefully selected models, while exchanging and discussing operative techniques with internationally recognized experts.

Day 1 is aimed at junior trainees, offering up to date teaching by experts on the physiological particularities of laparoscopy in children, pain management, but also technical aspects covering from the fine tunings of the stack to the basics of laparoscopy ergonomics. This theoretical introduction will be followed by a whole half-day of hands-on exercices with a view to improving laparoscopic knotting, suturing and dissection, with the help of animal models.

Day 2 is a laparoscopy technique masterclass for senior trainees and will entail two half-days of hands-on practice on animal models, with short video presentations, and high tutor-participant ratio.


Join this two-day hands-on course for pediatric surgeons on cadaveric animal models, full equipment in brand new surgical training center, multimedia-learning with training videos during hands-on practice.
