Course Description and Objectives

 To ensure patient’s safety in laparoscopic surgery, it is clear that future laparoscopic surgeons should possess objective measurable theoretical knowledge and practical skills, prior to undertaking any procedure, even under supervision, in the OR.

As part of its plan to standardize strategies and regulations for training in laparoscopy throughout Europe, the European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS) in collaboration with ESGE and EBCOG has conducted extensive scientific research resulting in a validated programme of exercises for acquiring and testing laparoscopic psychomotor skills.

LASTT is a validated assessment and certification method which measures and evaluates psychomotor skills in camera navigation, hand-eye and bi-manual coordination.

All exercises are executed in dry-lab set-up, with participants working together in pairs, and under the strict procedural guidance of instructors.

The course is open to all delegates interested in laparoscopic surgery, experience level is indifferent.

At the conclusion of the course the clinician will

  •  be assessed on his/her psychomotor skills level
  • be ranked by comparison with benchmark performance data of representative experienced laparoscopic surgeons receiving a red, green or yellow colour code at each test.
  • receive a final report of competence in laparoscopic
  • Will have received extensive information off all modalities of the GESEA programme
