Discovery robotics courses

A unique opportunity for EAES members to practice with the DaVinci or HUGO robotics systems.

One of the main goals of the EAES is the education and training of surgeons. Therefore we are thrilled to announce that, throughout the year, we can offer several discovery robotics courses. These courses are organised in collaboration with Intuitive (DaVinci robot system) or Medtronic (HUGO robot system) and are held at IRCAD training centre in Strasbourg, France.

Multiple successful courses have already been organised in the history of EAES and it is our honour that we can keep on offering this amazing opportunity to our members.

The faculty members for the courses will be selected by EAES and Intuitive / Medtronic.
