BSGE Meeting on Fresh Human Cadaveric Laparoscopic Gynaecological Anatomy 2017
The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy is delighted to organise the 4th Annual Hands-on Human Cadaveric Laparoscopic Anatomy Meeting in collaboration with the University of Oxford.
This meeting is designed for Laparoscopic Surgeons who wish to learn from preceptor guided hands on experience of laparoscopic pelvic anatomy in the dissection labs of Oxford University. The experienced faculty will be present to guide and teach applicants who can be Consultants or senior trainees. The course is particularly relevant to those enrolled in the Advanced ATSM on laparoscopic surgery for excision of benign disease, Subspecialty Urogynaecology and Oncology trainees, ST6 – ST7 trainees and Consultant Gynaecologists wishing to develop their laparoscopic skills.
The course is only open to members of the BSGE. Places are limited and usually oversubscribed, so a competitive selection process will be used. We look forward to your application by submitting the online application form to the BSGE secretariat and wish you luck.
