Abstract

In pursuit of continuing medical education in robotic surgery, several forms of training have been implemented. This variable application of curriculum has brought acquisition of skills in a heterogeneous and unstandardized fashion from different parts of the world. Recently, efforts have been made to provide cost effective and well-structured curricula with the aim of bridging the gap between formal fellowship training and short courses. Proctorship training has been implicated on some curriculum to provide excellent progression during the learning curve while ensuring patient safety.
