Standardising colorectal robotic surgery training

Through a structured training pathway. 

ColoRobotica training pathway

Delivered by the European School of Coloproctology (ESC) within the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP), the Colorectal Robotic Surgery Working Group (CRS WG), ColoRobotica have developed a colorectal robotic training pathway to provide standardised training approach supported by scientific societies in Europe. The programme includes selection criteria for surgeons and units, eLearning and in-person training components, proctoring and assessment and audit data, all of which are part of a colorectal robotic training pathway.

Training Pathway Developments

The Steering Committee of ColoRobotica has made significant strides in enhancing the Training Pathway. Their dedicated efforts over the years have led to a refined and more effective approach, with an expanded influence. They’ve showcased their insights at notable events such as the ESCP Annual Conference and OCERT X. Updates from Sam Tou and Marcos Gómez Ruiz are available, highlighting key presentations that illustrate our advancements and future direction in robotic surgery training.

ESCP Education Update Robotic Training Programme

At the ESCP 18th Scientific Conference in Vilnius, Sam Tou provided an update on the ColoRobotica Robotic Training Programme, highlighting the collaborative efforts in shaping a structured training pathway. Emphasising the importance of scientific societies in standardising surgical training, the update covered progress in developing comprehensive educational materials and establishing training centres across Europe.

Marcos Gómez Ruiz - OCERT X at Orsi Academy

At the OCERT X at Orsi Academy, Marcos Gómez Ruiz updated on the ESCP’s strides in robotic surgical training, focusing on the development of standardised learning pathways and scientific societies’ critical role in establishing colorectal surgery training benchmarks.

Structured training

After successful entry onto the programme you will have access to our online learning platform, eLearning modules and assessments. Following simulation training, you can attend workshops and observe experienced proctors. You will be supported at your institution by experienced proctors and there will be assessments throughout the programme to enhance learning and ensure you have the skills and knowledge required to progress to the next stage.
