Visit of the Royal College of Surgeons of England panel to Orsi Academy


Earlier this year we were proud to announce that Orsi Academy was accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. It is a valuable quality mark for surgical education which we attach great importance to. After an overall assessment of the Orsi training centre, our educational portfolio & our quality management processes, we were delighted that we successfully met RCS education standards.

Orsi’s approach is of vital importance of the future of training!

We were happy to welcome the panel for a tasty lunch at the Orsi restaurant. After a comprehensive tour of the Orsi premises, we concluded with a festal ceremony to reveal the official Royal College of Surgeons plaque, that has found a permanent home at the entrance of the Orsi building. Due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, the RCS review panel wasn't allowed to visit the Orsi facility earlier.

The accreditation of RCS England is a valuable quality mark for surgical education which we attach great importance to. 
More importantly, the accreditation of RCS England is an acknowledgement of the validation of the proficieny-based progression approach to robotic training, aside from the scientific proof from randomized trials with spectacular results.

We are looking forward to future collaboration and we are proud to be part of the RCS network!
