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.
