This is a teaching programme Gynaecological Endoscopy. Currently, most gynaecological interventions can be or can become laparoscopic, meaning a lower mortality rate, a shorter hospital stay and a better aesthetic result.

On the other hand the incorporation of robotic laparoscopy has made it possible to broaden knowledge to include newer and more up to date techniques. In this programme students participate directly in the surgery as assistants (authorised by the Hospital Teaching Committee) and they also do one day of each of the modules of experimental surgery in the hospital laboratories.


The main objective of this programme is to provide updated knowledge in the field of endoscopic surgery (laparoscopy and robotics) and in the pathology of the pelvic floor through the active participation by students in these procedures allowing student to carry out the techniques individually by the end of the programme.

- Analyse the basic aspects of endoscopy and the level of laparoscopic knowledge of each of the students.

- Study the the functioning mechanisms of the essential tools in endoscopy.
