Last week the people of EFRO (European Fund for Regional Development) came to visit our construction project. They are financially supporting the project together with the Government of Flanders (Vlaamse Regering). Therefore, we would like to thank them again for the support.

" As Europe’s largest training center for robotic surgery, ORSI Academy has gained international renown. It was established in Melle (Flanders) in 2012 and only five years later, doctors from every corner of the world make the journey to be trained in minimally invasive therapies. “The success of the existing center called for an expansion,” says Dr. Alex Mottrie, urologist and world authority in robotic surgery. "

Mottrie is ambitious: “In five years, we want to be able to train 2,500 doctors.” In order to do so, ORSI Academy will add at least three new robots to the five the center is already equipped with and hire 20 new employees. Investments are estimated to amount to some EUR 18 million.

Orsi Academy has its own e-learning platform, centralizing the best of existing educational content and making it accessible for approved users.

Step-by-step videos with explanatory textual information are provided in the video-library next to didactic material. Proctors can push specific content to course participants prior to the course or allow alumni to consult course material later on in their career. Next to these sections, links to a wide variety of discipline-specific literature can be found on the platform.
