Training in transoral robotic surgery

During this course students acquire knowledge and skills in the assembly and functioning of the Da Vinci robot. Students also perform practical exercises for application in minimally invasive surgery and receive specific training in the TORS surgical technique using animal or cadaver models, including the positioning of the robot on the surgical area, structural identification and surgical gestures.
