COURSE PRESENTATION
The Human Cadaveric Advanced (HUCAD) Laparoscopic Urology is an innovative course for surgical training. This Prostate Module 2-day course will provide a surgical experience that is the closest possible to reality.
The programme will cover a wide range of techniques of urological laparoscopy surgery.
This is a unique course, because participants will have the opportunity to practice real laparoscopic surgery on embalmed cadavers, and feel what they should expect in real surgery.

During the course, each participant will have an opportunity to get ‘hands-on’ experience in various laparoscopic techniques under the supervision of experienced tutors.
This course is limited to 12 participants with previous basic laparoscopy skills, divided by 6 operating room tables (3 per table).
