Course Overview

This 4-Day comprehensive Basic Robotic Training Course utilizes a blended training experience that will focus on:

  • Define the robotic surgical platform components, features, setup requirements, and troubleshooting measures. 
  • Develop the psychomotor skills required to safely operate the robotic surgical platform.
  • Demonstrate how the robotic surgical platform is integrated into the operating room setting and how the platform can be best utilized in clinical practice. 
  • Develop clinical efficiency through comprehensive team training. 

During this program, you experience will include; discussions on robotic surgical technology, human factors associated with robotic surgery, surgical skills evaluation tools for robotics, robotic surgical platform training, hands-on simulation, wet & dry lab experiences, and competency development in the skills required to safely operate the Intuitive Surgical daVinci Robot. 

The course also includes; developing efficiencies within the healthcare team, extensive evaluation of your robotic skills throughout the course, access to robotic surgical resources to aid in your practice, a comprehensive follow-up evaluation following the course to ensure your making the most out of your training. This training is available to surgeons, fellows, and residents that are interested in safely transitioning learning into practice and developing competency in robotic surgical skills. 

Program Objectives:

  • Identify the specific robotic platform components, settings, and features required to safely utilize and operate the robotic surgical platform. 
  • Demonstrate the proper robotic platform pre-operative setup, troubleshooting measures, and emergency procedures required to safely operate the robotic surgical platform. 
  • Demonstrate competency in the following core robotic psychomotor skills; Endowrist Manipulation, Camera Navigation, Instrument Clutching, 4th Arm Application, Energy Application, Needle Driving, Surgical Knot Tying, and Suturing. 
  • Demonstrate competency in the basic skills required for the surgical 1st assistant to include; Camera Navigation, Instrument Insertion, Item Hand-off’s & Transfers, Cutting, Retraction, Suctioning, Irrigating, Energy Application, and Hemoclip Application. 
  • Recognize the roles and responsibilities of each robotic surgical team member and competently perform the proper setup of the robotic surgical platform for a surgical procedure. 

Course Cost:

  • $4,166                      Includes Breakfast + Lunch
  • $3,600                      Fellows & Residents only. Verification Required

Hotel accommodations are not included in the price of registration.

Course Experience:

In order to maximize the experience for the course attendee, the course agenda is individualized for each attendee; consequently, the agenda will be different for each course participant. All course attendees will receive the same experience and level of instruction and will be required to successfully complete each course element to receive full credit for the course. 

Credentialing & Privileging Disclosure:

The determination of a physician’s readiness to perform robotic surgery is solely the responsibility of the hospital, surgical center or medical facility where the procedure takes place, as to which neither AdventHealth nor its affiliates has any role. The skill competency of a particular physician and any procedure-specific training needs are matters that are determined solely by each treating hospital, surgical center or medical facility on its own behalf.
