Two hands-on training courses will be offered at UROtech22.

  • Hands on Training: Basic Laparoscopic Skills
    In this course, participants will learn and practice basic laparoscopic and suturing skills. Psychomotor skills such as depth perception and bimanual dexterity are taught through the validated exercises of the European Basic Laparoscopic Urological Skills (E-BLUS) training programme. Experienced laparoscopist-tutors will guide you to master such basic laparoscopy skills as instrument handling, pattern cutting and intracorporal suturing. This course can be used as an additional training to prepare for the E-BLUS examination.
