Course Overview

This robotics course of instruction provides comprehensive training for the perioperative staff on multi-port robotic platforms. This comprehensive training course is designed to provide first assistants, nurses, and surgical technologists with both technical and clinical applications of the robotic surgical platform. This course will focus on robotic platform technical training, preparation of the robotic surgical patient, and basic surgical 1st assistant skills required for robotic surgery. 

Course Objectives:

  • Identify the specific robotic platform components, settings, and features required to safely utilize and operate the robotic surgical platform.
  • Demonstrate the proper robotic platform pre-operative setup, troubleshooting measures, and emergency procedures required to safely operate the robotic surgical platform.
  • Employ the proper patient positioning and robotic docking procedures for commonly performed robotic surgical procedures.
  • Recognize and articulate the roles and responsibilities of each robotic surgical team member and competently perform the proper setup for a robotic surgical procedure.
  • Apply the basic skills required for the surgical 1st assistant in a simulated robotic surgical procedure.

Registration Price: $950

This course is open to: Physician Assistants, Surgical Assistants, Registered Nurses, RNFA's, Surgical Technologists, CSTFA's. This course is limited to 10 participants.
