Course details

Orsi Academy offers a Beginner Course in Robotic Training, endorsed by ESU.

For experienced open or laparoscopic urologists with little to no experience in robotics, who want to make the transition to robotic urology. It's very important that the aspiring participant already has access to a robotic system in his/her hospital.

! This course consist of 2 x 3 consecutive days.

! This course is followed by a PART 2, taking place 18-20/12/2019.

>> When you book the course, you subscribe for both parts automatically!

It is important that, during those 3 weeks in between sessions, the participants practice parts of the procedures in their own hospital.

Proctored by an Intuitive trainer & Dr. Elio Mazzone, directed by Prof. Alex Mottrie.

The 2 x 3-day masterclass consists of hands-on dry-lab & wet-lab training and live case-observations at the OLV Hospital in Aalst.

After completion, participants receive an ERUS/ESU certificate as a console surgeon.

After sending a video for blind reviewing, an EAU certificate can also be obtained.

Combining the course with the Intuitive certificate "Console Surgeon" is possible.

In order to make this combination, please contact your local Intuitive CSR in the period before the training, as certain steps need to be completed. In case the participant doesn’t know who to contact, we are happy to help.

- You will get a simulation assessment.

- You will receive advanced dry-lab training on canine model.
