    Robotic Surgery Boot Camp - A Resident Opportunity

    The Robotic Surgery boot camp is designed to provide all Creighton surgical (general surgery, urology, GYN and other surgical disciplines) residents with an integrated approach of computer-based learning modules and hands-on training.

    Expand to learn about this half day course.

    The curriculum provides all residents with basic knowledge of robotically assisted laparoscopy, its instrumentation, system components, and troubleshooting techniques through a computer-based testing.

    It also provides residents with a dry lab to familiarize themselves with the components and instrumentation of the robotic operating system and its uses.

    Boot Camp Activities

    The boot camp covers such subjects depending up on resident level of training:

    • Boot Camp levels
      • Junior level (1st and 2 yr)
      • Senior (Third year and after)
    • Port Placement & Docking
    • Patient-side Assisting
    • Emergency Procedures
    • Energy Application & Advanced Instrumentation
    • Suturing with the da Vinci System
    • Emergency Procedures

    Individual departments also have periodic robotic skills sessions.

    General Surgery:

    General surgery department arranges periodic skills session. This will be faculty led supervised activities with small group robotic practice sessions.

    The Skills session includes

    1. Robotic docking and bedside assistance practice sessions
    2. Energy device utilization
    3. Targeted suturing sessions
    4. Robotic suturing and tissue cutting practice
    5. Completing general and advanced robotic simulations

    At present, most of our residents (mostly by third year) can achieve Robotic certification requirements.
