Laparoscopic psychomotor skill Assessment
Participants are invited to test the basic laparoscopic skills through the LASTT method developed by +he Academy. For the first time a scientific validated method has been defined where, independent of the medical skills, the required psychomotor skills for laparoscopy are being assessed. Participants will go through an assessment of three exercises, performed in a pelvic trainer box and using the appropriate endoscopic equipment and instruments. 

Laparoscopic suturing skills
Laparosopic suturing is a challenging skill and seen as a necessary skill for every laparoscopic surgeon which can be learned and trained on an inanimate model. The participants will work in pairs of similar experience and will receive depending on their basic skills an exercise programme appropriate to their level.
