Live Robotic Surgery Link from Karolinska University Hospital
The Karolinska University Hospital has launched a live surgery channel that will regularly broadcast live surgery, including RARP and totally intracorporeal RARC with both intracorporeal ileal conduit and neobladder formation. Following the recent excellent guidelines published on live surgical events at meetings in the July European Urology Journal, this is very topical.
The unit believes that standardised surgery performed from a home institution maximises the benefits of live surgery in education. They will complement the live surgery with webinars and have an ambitious program planned for later this year.
The website that hosts all live surgery events, and also gives access to previous surgeries and outcomes, can be found at www.quaternaryhealth.com. A "tips and tricks" section for robotic surgery has also been launched recently.
Open FRCS Urol Resources
A large amount of revision material has been provided here.
This includes extensive notes provided as audio files, written revision sheets for a large number of topics, a postgraduate e-book, advice on sitting the FRCS Urol examination and instructions on how to download an app which contains a selection of "spot test questions" from the self-assessment section of Urology News.
Much of this information has been provided by individuals who have been through the examination system and now wish to pass on their expertise to future generations.
All written material can be downloaded (as PDF files) and either stored on your computer or printed for later reference; this material is provided as "open access".
Private Resources (Presentations and Images)
This section is currently empty but, when completed, will contain PowerPoint® presentations and images of urological topics which have been submitted by members of SURG, for use by other members.
If you wish to submit some of your own presentations, please e-mail them to the SURG Secretary for incorporation into the site.
To gain access to these files, you will need to contact your Regional Representative, who can provide you with the password. Access can only be granted to trainees from the UK and Ireland.
