Overview:

The Fellowship in Robotic Surgery stands as an intensive and advanced training program tailored to empower surgeons with specialized expertise in harnessing robotic-assisted surgical techniques across a diverse spectrum of medical specialties. Over a duration of 12 months, this fellowship provides a comprehensive curriculum encompassing practical training, didactic education, research endeavors, and collaborative efforts across multidisciplinary teams.

Throughout the fellowship, fellows immerse themselves in a wide array of clinical experiences, mastering robotic surgical techniques across various specialties including general surgery, urology, gynecology, cardiothoracic surgery, and head and neck surgery. This encompasses procedures ranging from routine cholecystectomy to intricate prostatectomy and complex mitral valve repair, among others. Additionally, fellows engage in multidisciplinary care, collaborating closely with specialists from other disciplines for complex cases and research initiatives, thereby gaining a holistic understanding of patient management.

The didactic components of the program are equally enriching, featuring lectures, seminars, and case discussions led by experts in the field. Fellows delve into the fundamental principles of robotic surgery, robotic platforms and instrumentation, patient selection criteria, intraoperative techniques, and postoperative care protocols. Regular case reviews, multidisciplinary team meetings, and morbidity and mortality conferences further enhance their learning experience and foster a culture of continuous improvement.

Patient care remains paramount throughout the fellowship, with fellows actively involved in the preoperative evaluation, surgical planning, intraoperative execution, and postoperative management of robotic surgery patients. This comprehensive approach ensures that fellows not only develop technical proficiency but also gain expertise in providing compassionate and patient-centered care.

Evaluation of fellows is conducted through a combination of methods including direct observation, formal assessments, research progress, and reviews of patient care and interdisciplinary collaboration. Upon completion of the fellowship, graduates emerge as highly skilled and confident robotic surgeons, poised to make significant contributions to patient care, research, and innovation in the field. With a solid foundation in clinical practice, research methodologies, and multidisciplinary collaboration, they are well-equipped to advance the frontier of robotic-assisted surgery and enhance patient outcomes across diverse medical specialties.
