This Workshop provides participants with the opportunity to learn skills in minimal access surgery in a dynamic teaching environment. This highly interactive workshop features case discussion with demonstration videos, discussions and demonstrations on laparoscopic suturing models. The program allows sufficient time for practising skills.Practical sessions feature a dedicated work station for each participant, with assistance provided by a medical student camera operator.
At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have gained knowledge and familiarity with the physiology, basic techniques and technical skills required for minimal access surgery. This will enable them to effectively assist on laparoscopic surgeries when they return to their hospital setting.
