Basic Endoscopy Workshop


This endoscopy workshop will be very hands-on course where both virtual reality endoscopic simulators and bench task trainers will be used to practice doing gastroscopy and colonoscopy, on modules with different pathologies. In some of the modules tasks such as polypectomy and biopsy will be performed.

The workshop will be run in two parallel sessions to maximise simulator use. The interactive case based discussions will deal with themes such as oesophageal, gastric and small and large bowl diseases with video and visual footage of real cases.

Laparoscopic basic skills course (LBS)


Laparoscopic surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS), or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm). There are a number of advantages with laparoscopic surgery in comparison to open procedure. Pain, small incisions and recovery times are more favourable to the patient. Training of all essential and advanced laparoscopic general surgery are of great help to surgeon, here in this course we try to simplify the course in short, comprehensive and interactive methods to help the candidate to start their practice in future life

Objective of the course:

By the end of this course we expect the following:

  • To provide surgical registrar/ young surgeon with the essential theoretical knowledge and practical experience of basic level laparoscopic surgery.
  • To verify indication and contraindication of the procedure.
  • To know complications of the procedure.
  • To be able to identify the instruments and handling.
  • To be able to suture, tie knots and perform some of the key procedures in laparoscopic surgery.
  • To be familiar with the following procedure:
    • Diagnostic laparoscopy
    • Laparoscopic appendectomy
    • Laparoscopic cholecystectomy
