Resident Doctor

This course unit is specifically tailored to assisting physicians and surgical assistants who have recently assumed the responsibility of assisting robot assisted surgeries.

Programm für Assistenten

 What is unique about robot assisted surgery?

The surgeon is no longer part of the sterile team at the table but instead sits off to the side at his user console. This demands a higher degree of professionalism from the assistant and requires especially well-developed communication skills from the entire team. While the surgeon in traditional surgery could always physically reach out to the assistant and take or guide an instrument, this is no longer possible in robot-assisted surgery.

That leaves a surgeon exclusively with the ability communicate verbally. This doesn’t sound particularly complex, but experience, however, has shown that this presents an adjustment for the entire team. In this course, the assistant or surgical technical assistant will learn his or her role, such as in a radical prostatectomy, step-by-step. Instructional materials include live case observation, presentations as well as videos. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion and handouts for review of the material covered in the course.
