Standardising and expanding Gynaecological Endoscopy training in Europe

The Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment programme (GESEA) is a structured educational approach to Gynaecological Endoscopy providing training, certification and skill advancement for surgeons.

This programme is well established and already provides certification to gynaecological surgeons with more than 3,200 certificates issued to date. GESEA4EU is a two year project built on GESEA which began in February 2023. This innovative cross-border project brings together 16 partners from 8 European countries and is co-funded by the European Union. GESEA4EU partners plan to standardise the GESEA training offer already provided to surgeons in the existing 12 GESEA centres and expand it to meet the training needs of other healthcare professionals including nurses and supporting non-clinical staff.

During the project lifetime, 27 learning modules will be developed and trialled within the existing network under the existing certification procedures. Furthermore, GESEA4EU will enable the GESEA programme to be expanded to meet the training needs of 9 new GESEA centres in the process of being identified in Northern and Eastern Europe where the learning modules will be piloted and evaluated.   Finally, GESEA4EU will support the promotion of the GESEA programme through the European Board & College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology as part of the EBCOGPACT Framework.
