Course Information

This year's course will train 52 fellows who are currently in their second or third year of fellowship and who have not attended this course in the past. Each fellow will spend one day in the robotic lab and one day in didactic sessions. This course includes a full-day fresh cadaver lab for all fellows!

In order to maximize the number of fellows who can participate we have created two sessions for participation.
