Advanced Training Program
Training in robot-assisted surgery at AMRA offers a unique combination of robotic surgery education program with a linear pathway through a four-tiered curriculum of robotic surgical training.
Step 1 of the AMRA program is:
A 15 hour Foundational online curriculum for all surgeons commencing robot surgery.
Step 2 is simulation and VR education using a proficiency based progression.
Step 3 is 3D narrated robotic surgery video instruction.
Once these tasks are completed satisfactorily, AMRA provides Step 4:
A revolutionary low and high fidelity synthetic human organ models to teach specific surgeries. These surgeries can be scored through video as a measure robotic surgical proficiency
Broad course range covering all career stages, extending from online courses featuring 3D/stereoscopic narrated videos, through VR simulation to live surgery, all retaining close alignment with RACS training guidelines
VR and Simulation
Virtual reality is integrated from the initial online courses, and is utilised extensively with the simulator-based training
Reduce then eliminate the need for cadavers and animals via lifelike synthetic organs that can be created on demand to simulate both normal and diseased conditions
Simulators and robots are not based in operating theatres where there is restricted availability. Instead, dedicated rooms with 24/7 accessibility increase both the number of trainees for participants to complete additional personal practice sessions
New devices entering the robotic surgery market will open a host of new possibilities. AMRA will provide training on all key systems, including the well-established da Vinci system plus offerings from CMR Surgical and Medtronic as they commence operations in Australian operating theatres
