Date & Location
Occurs monthly on the 1st day of each month starting on 1/28/2019 at 8:00 AM, Florida Hospital Nicholson Center, Celebration, FL

Target Audience
Surgery (All)

This 5-Day comprehensive Basic Robotic Training Course utilizes a blended training experience that will focus on: 1) Defining the robotic surgical platform components, features, setup requirements, and troubleshooting measures. 2) Developing the psychomotor skills required to safely operate the robotic surgical platform. 3) Leveraging surgical case observation in defining how the robotic surgical platform is integrated into the operating room setting and how the platform can be best utilized in clinical practice. 4) Developing clinical efficiency through comprehensive team training. During the program, your experience will include; exposure to discussions on robotic technology, human factors, surgical skill evaluation tools, robotic surgical platform training, hands-on simulation, hands-on laboratory experiences, surgical case observation, and competency development in the skills required to safely operate the Intuitive Surgical daVinci Robot.

  1. Translate the core robotic psychomotor skills that include; endowrist manipulation, camera navigation, instrument clutching, 4th arm application, energy application, needle driving, surgical knot tying, & suturing as it relates to the execution of these skills in the remote surgeon’s console of the robotic surgical platform.
  2. Translate the basic core 1st assistant skills required in robotic surgery to include: Camera Navigation, Instrument Insertion, Hand-Off’s & Transfers, Cutting, Retraction, Suctioning, Irrigating, Energy, and Hemoclip Application as it relates to the execution of these skills at the patient side of a robotic surgical procedure
  3. Translate the proper fine motor movements required to perform microsurgery as it relates to performing basic core robotic psychomotor skills.
  4. Recall and identify the general robotic platform components, settings, and features
  5. Define the roles and responsibilities of each robotic surgical team member and demonstrate the proper setup of the robotic surgical platform.
