The Programme

The Deanery Laparoscopic Training Online Programme (LTO) is the ultimate web based solution to training in Minimally Invasive Gynaecological Surgery as a trainee within your Deanery. 

The LTO is a two tier programme for trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology wishing to extend their laparoscopic experience and improve their skills in laparoscopic suturing.

This means that there are two LTO programme tiers, LT1 and LT2. You are recommended to complete the LT1 programme tier during your ST1 to ST4 years and the LT2 programme tier during your ST5 to ST7 years. Each LTO programme tier is 12 weeks long. Each LTO programme tier comprises of seven modules.

Each delegate will be provided with a laparoscopic box trainer package by the Deanery for the duration of the LTO programme tier they are allocated to and will be expected to attend all seven Zoom based online modules of the programme tier and complete the web based tasks by online video submission. 

As a delegate you will also receive lifetime membership to the LTO programme's members area on the website which will boast a comprehensive library of surgical videos and course material and allows you to network with Surgeons within your Deanery. Each trainee will be appointed a mentor from around the UK, for lifelong guidance.
