Very useful teaching. Good to learn and have the opportunity and time to practice.

Great one day course. Good faculty to delegate ratio, plenty of laparoscopic box trainers and lots of experience gained with laparoscopic suturing, stapling & energy devices. Fully recommend the course to anyone wanting to build on their laparoscopic skills.

Siddhartha Bhandary

Well done. Just some of the cameras were not up to the mark.

The Advanced Laparoscopic skills workshop provided me with lots of hands on experience throughout the day. I found this to be a really enjoyable and informative workshop. The faculty and workshop accommodated for all levels of trainees including an F2 like myself!. Many thanks for the course.

Good course for doctors in early years of training.

Thalia Petropoulou

Usefull course- I had the change to learn and practise the one hand suture tecqnique which was really helpfull. Also the bowel anastomosis section was usefull, but we needed one more hour to practise on them. I also think that the lower GI trainer should be more experienced, so we could spend less time in watching the tecqnique and more time doing it. Also, the pairing groups should be more equal as of training levels. But usefull course overall, worthing the time spend attending it.
