EACCME® Accreditation:

The ERUS Structured Robotic Training Program has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 2 x 22 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found here.

Pre-Course Requirements:

For experienced open or laparoscopic urologists with little to no experience in robotics, who want to make the transition to robotic urology. It's important that aspiring participants already have access to a robotic system in their hospital!

The 2 x 3-day masterclass endorsed by ESU consists of:

Part 1:

  • day one: pretest + basic technology training given by an Intuitive trainer
  • day two: dual bay live case observation in the OLV hospital in Aalst
  • day three: hands-on wet lab training on porcine model + simulation assessment

In between the two parts: perform several steps of the prostatectomy with guidance of an on-site proctor.

Part 2:

  • day one: pretest + advanced dry lab training on a canine model
  • day two: dual bay live case observation in the OLV hospital in Aalst
  • day three: advanced wet lab training: full prostatectomy on porcine model + final simulation

After completion, participants receive an ERUS/ESU certificate as a console surgeon.

After sending a video for blind reviewing, an EAU certificate can also be obtained.

Combining the course with the Intuitive certificate "Console Surgeon" is possible. In order to make this combination, please contact your local Intuitive CSR in the period before the training, as certain steps need to be completed. In case the participant doesn’t know who to contact, we are happy to help.
