Pathways GESEA Educational Programme

Acquire your GESEA Robotics Diploma

Gynaecological Robotics Surgeon

The GESEA Robotics Pathway allows you to acquire your Diploma of Gynaecological Robotics Surgeon. The first step is to get your GESEA Level 1 Certificate proving your general endoscopic knowledge and acquirement of basic endoscopic psychomotor skills. The second step is to successfully complete the GESEA Level 2 Robotics exam and be awarded the GESEA Level 2 Robotics Certificate. This certificate indicates that you have mastered the knowledge and more advanced psychomotor skills as needed to start performing basic endoscopic procedures. Finally, when you have the necessary surgical experience and related competence, you may apply for the GESEA Robotics Diploma.

GESEA Level 1 Certificate

Your entry point into the Operating Room

  • Knowledge Acquisition

    Sign up for the GESEA Level 1 e-learning on ESGE Academy and complete the theoretical tutorials and quizzes of level 1. You will be awarded with a certificate of completion.

  • Practical Skill Training

    Develop your practical skills by exercising with the GESEA Training Tools at your centre, in one of the GESEA Training or Diploma Centres, or during the ESGE Annual Congress and other national congresses where GESEA is present.

  • Certification

    Take the GESEA Level 1 exam at an accredited GESEA Diploma Centre or during an official GESEA Event. The certification session consists of (1) a theoretical exam, TESTT1, which contains 50 multiple choice questions on instrumentation, OR organisation, anatomy, different endoscopic techniques and complication management, and (2) three practical exams, LASTT1, SUTT1 and HYSTT1.

Prerequisites for Level 1 Certification

  • GESEA Level 1 E-Learning Certificate of Completion

    When applying for a level 1 certification, submit your Certificate of Completion together with your application or bring it with you at the certification session.

GESEA Level 2 Robotics Certificate

Start performing basic endoscopic procedures

  • Knowledge Acquisition

    Complete the theoretical tutorials and quizzes of GESEA Level 2 MIGS e-learning on ESGE Academy and the robot-specific e-learning module.

  • Practical Skill Training

    Develop your practical skills by exercising with the GESEA Training Tools at your centre, in one of the GESEA Training or Diploma Centres, or during the ESGE Annual Congress and other national congresses where GESEA is present.

  • Certification

    Take the GESEA Level 2 MIGS exam at an accredited GESEA Diploma Centre or during an official GESEA Event. The certification session consists of  (1) a theoretical exam, TESTT2, which contains 100 multiple choice questions on instrumentation, OR organisation, anatomy, different endoscopic techniques and complication management, and (2) three practical exams, LASTT2, SUTT2 and HYSTT2. To validate your psychomotor skills with the robot, successfully complete the robotic skills exercises.

Prerequisites for Level 2 MIGS Certification

  • GESEA Level 1 Certificate

    First acquire the GESEA Level 1 Certificate before you can apply for the next level. Provide your certificate as proof that you have completed the first level upon registration for a second level certification session.

    If you have carried out more than 200 endoscopic interventions as first surgeon, you can apply for a bypass to omit the GESEA Level 1 certification. Note that you still need to complete the GESEA Level 1 e-learning on ESGE Academy.

  • GESEA Level 2 MIGS E-Learning Certificate of Completion

    When applying for a Level 2 Robotics Certification, submit your Certificate of Completion together with your application or bring it with you at the certification session.
