The Surgical Technology and Robotics course provides a systematic overview of the use, potential benefits and dangers of technology in modern surgery. It gives an exceptional opportunity for an introduction, with hands-on experience, to leading edge modern surgical technology such as the Da Vinci Robotic Surgical Platform.
Offered by Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences and the Department for Continuing Education’s CPD Centre, the taught week features face-to-face didactic lectures, interactive tutorials, individual mentoring sessions and dedicated time on surgical simulators. There is a one-day visit to a hospital site outside of Oxford.Please send me an email about future Surgical Technology and Robotics courses.
