Training for new techniques and robotic surgery in minimal access surgery

Jung Myun Kwak, Sungsoo Park

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Introduction of new techniques and technologies should be accomplished safely and efficiently, and without compromising patient safety and outcomes. Standardized curricula with simulation-based components for training are required in this evolving field of minimal access surgery. Procedural training which is carried out in a step-by-step manner using proctoring, mentoring, video review, and live surgery demonstrations is also essential. This chapter describes educational and training modalities for new minimal access surgery and robotic surgery that will support establishment of optimal training programmes.
