Limited training facilities in gynecological endoscopic surgery, inability to
provide standardization in special training program, and rapid improvements in
technology made post-specialty education very important.
Additionally, with virtual reality technologies entering into application area
of education of surgery, gynecological endoscopy training gained a new aspect,
and unlike traineeship model, it became possible to assess the surgical skills
Our Department had significant roles in endoscopic surgery training with a
number of training organizations arranged so far. Virtual reality technology for
gynecological endoscopy training was also applied first in our Department across
A significant deficiency of gynecological endoscopy training in our country is
that an appropriate and adequate endoscopy training model or program could not
be introduced. The infrastructure of endoscopy training in our clinic has
finally been completed after long years of work, and a 1-month post-specialty
training model has been formed.
For this training model, a theoretical training, training with dummies and
simulators, one-to-one surgical training in operation room, and a final
certification are planned. Our training program shall be available in 3 periods
a year, beginning with the first one in February 2008, and participation to each
program is limited with 5 trainees.
With the principal that endoscopic surgery is a team work, similar training
programs for nurses are also prepared within the same periods and terms. Number
of nurses is limited with 5 for each training period.
We invite everyone willing to be trained in this area, and that is interested in
endoscopic surgery, to join our training program.
