The Programme

The Advanced Laparoscopic Training Online Programme is the ultimate web based solution to training in Minimally Invasive Gynaecological Surgery.

The ALTO is a 8 week programme for registrars and consultants in Gynaecology wishing to extend their laparoscopic experience and improve their skills in intracorporeal suturing. 

Each delegate will be provided the Inovus Medical® pyxus® Pro Move laparoscopic training package for the duration of the programme and will be expected to attend all seven Zoom based online modules of the programme and complete the web based tasks by online video submission.

 

All delegates will also be invited to attend a Minimally Invasive Gynaecological Surgery Masterclass at the University Hospitals of North Midlands normally held twice a year.

As a delegate you will also receive lifetime membership to the ALTO Programme's members area on the website which boasts a comprehensive library of surgical videos and course material.
