You will have the opportunity to keep the simulator package for the duration of the programme until your mandatory attendance at the UHNM Masterclass, where you will be expected return it.
During the programme, you will attend six online tutorials on Zoom, every two weeks. During each Zoom tutorial you will be taken through a specific exercise, step by step, with live directed supervision on your laparoscopic simulators and after your tutorials you will be expected to submit an unedited video of your best independent attempt at the exercise of the tutorial.
All videos will be evaluated and individual feedback will be provided by the tutor of that particular exercise.
