<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.</p>

The course was extremely useful for me in terms of technical knowledge and also practical tips. The course instructors were excellent and made every effort to accomodate me as the only native English speaker. The simulations were interesting and I personally found the exercises very useful for later in the animal model. Hospitality was excellent and facilities/ food were good. Only criticism was the short time allocated on the love animal model on the last day. It would have been good to have the whole day spent putting into practice what we had learnt in 4 days.
