Dr. Roland S. The course was great and very helpful for getting started with robotic surgery. Only one minor issue was that we were asked to finish the course one day at 4:30pm, although it was scheduled until 5pm. At our stage of training, we were eager to get each second for practicing. Given the decent registration fee, it should not happen that we are asked to finish early.
