Robotic GYN Curriculum

robotic curriculumBelow is the detailed Robotic GYN Curriculum Education under the direction of Dr. Munther Alaiwat.

Objectives

  • Understanding and correctly identifying the various components of the da Vinci Xi robotic platform.
  • Mastering the safe and efficient set up of the patient in the operating room.
  • Developing laparoscopic skills as a first assistant.
  • Docking and troubleshooting the robotic platform during the surgical procedure.
  • Developing adequate surgical skills as the primary Surgeon to qualify for a “Certificate of Robotic Surgical Training,” which would allow our graduating residents to start practicing robotics without the need to be proctored.
  • Maintaining current knowledge of robotic literature in our specialty.
  • Providing a system that helps guide attending exectations regarding knowledge/skill level of the residents at various stages of their training.
