The IMRA Approach
IMRA brings clinicians, academics, device vendors, accreditation bodies and government together to develop and deliver world-class training and research in robot-assisted surgery. IMRA’s approach is based on four core pillars.
IMRA’s new state of the art training facility houses the latest simulation equipment, robotic devices and synthetic organ models.
These tools enable trainees to develop high competence levels in a wide range of procedures before advancing to live surgery.
eLearning transforms education.
It enables mobile, self-paced , multi-media instruction that can be repeated as desired, anywhere, anytime, all with optimal access to fellow trainees and instructors via built-in discussion platforms.
Optimal training methods and accrediation standards are continuing to develop in the rapidly emerging field of robotic surgery.
IMRA is actively involved in this process through its close connection with a range of partners including the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, the Victorian Government, and robotic device vendors.
Robot-assisted surgery is evolving rapidly with constant development of more advanced devices, surgical methods and training methodologies. Clinicians, academics and device vendors connect through IMRA to pursue their shared goal of advancing surgical procedures, whilst reducing complication rates, recovery times and costs.
