Goals: SAGES faculty and experts will teach both didactic and hands-on skills in robotic surgery. A broad range of robotic procedures will be covered with the emphasis placed on system set up, instrument selection, and technical approaches. At the end of the course, MIS fellows will become familiar with current and future robotics technology by emphasizing safe and practical applications in general surgery cases.
- All current/incoming MIS fellows may apply, though this course cannot support GYN or Thoracic fellows.
- Fellowships must contain robotic surgical systems and general faculty with robotic privileges.
- Online Modules: Each fellow will be required to show completion of either the FRS Robotic Surgical Curriculum (Modules 1, 2, 4) or Intuitive Robotic Curriculum for Xi.
- Hands-On Training: Each fellow should have hands-on experience. If you do not, you will be asked to work with your program director to arrange a formal da Vinci in-service before the course, or to schedule a local Intuitive Rep to conduct one with you.
