Dr. Guglielmo Niccolò P. This course is very well structured with a great amount of practical activity. It makes you grow confidence and manuality in the robotic interaction. The staff is very prepared and professional and is always careful in correcting your mistakes and guiding you in order to learn the best. I am very satisfied from this course and expecially from the high level of the Nancy Surgical School and the Stan Institute. I will remain in contact for further new courses.
