Prerequisites for Level 2 GESEA Robotics 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.

    You can apply for a bypass if you meet the following criteria:

    • Must be over 45 years old
    • Must provide a letter signed by head of department, confirming applicant has experience in major surgeries in both laparoscopy and hysteroscopy
    • Must provide proof of attendance at a recognised suturing workshop

    Note that you still need to complete the GESEA Level 1 e-learning on ESGE Academy.

  • GESEA Level 2 MIGS/ECRES 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.

Knowledge Acquisition
Complete the theoretical tutorials and quizzes of GESEA Level 2 MIGS/ECRES 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 Accredited 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 Robotics 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 25 multiple choice questions on instrumentation,

different endoscopic techniques and complication management, and

(2) To validate your psychomotor skills with the robot, successfully complete the robotic skills exercises, SSRT.
