The CICE is now a center approved by the ESGE for the European certification


What exactly does the Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment (GESEA programme) involve?

It consists of a training programme developed by the European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS) and the European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE). It was drawn up in collaboration with University experts in endoscopic surgery. The goal is to provide certification of your theoretical knowledge and technical skills according to 3 levels (bachelor, minimally invasive surgery practitioner, pelvic surgery expert). So it includes a theoretical examination using MCQs (TESTT) and a practical test based on various modules (LASTT, SUTT, HYSTT). The tasks in the practical test have been validated scientifically, from the training point of view, by various studies and several scientific publications. This certification, notably concerning the minimum technical skills required of a surgeon and which has been so often suggested in the past, is thus becoming a reality today. The programme has been validated by the major European Learned Societies (ESRHE, EBCOG, ENTOG, ESGE) and approved by the North American Societies (ACOG, AAGL). Up until now this certification could only be obtained on the occasion of the annual ESGE or at the EAGS. From 2016 onwards it can be awarded by various centres in Europe (2 per country), among which the CICE. We felt it was important for you to be able to take this step on the occasion of the CICE diploma course.

Maurice-Antoine Bruhat

The International Centre for Endoscopic Surgery (CICE) was created in 1990 by Professor Maurice Antoine Bruhat to respond to the joint challenge of the evolution of surgical techniques and new imaging technologies.

The major innovation  represented by the development of laparoscopic surgical techniques has led simultaneously to a strong demand for training. Recognized leader in this new minimally invasive surgery in gynaecology, the Clermont team felt the need to implement an experimental simulation centre dedicated to education alongside its clinical activity.     
The CICE provides formal lectures and also a practical introduction to advanced techniques aimed at interns, chief residents/registrars and also the most experienced surgeons, along with anaesthetists and operating room nurses. Practical assessments are also important. 

The CICE welcomes about 1,500 people every year from all horizons, national and international. Its latest generation technical platform is open to other specialties, including collaboration with interventional imaging.

Research and development, evaluation and design of new tools, basic research and the creation of multimedia teaching aids count among the CICE's many other activities.          .

Thanks to its partnership with the University hospital services, the CICE is able to welcome foreign practitioners for short or long stays.
