We are proud to announce that Dr. Ibrahim Alkatout, Head of the Kiel School of Gynaecological Endoscopy, has been awarded the MIC III certificate, the highest certificate bestowed by the German Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (AGE) for minimal invasive surgery. The basis for such a certification is proof of a significant number of endoscopic operations at the highest level.
After the summer break we began the second half of our training year with an International Training Course from 19th - 23rd September.This course was designed to offer participants from further afield the opportunity to undergo a five-day intensive training course in gynaecological endoscopic surgery. Sixteen participants from around the world took part in a comprehensive training programme to develop and improve their laparoscopic and hysteroscopic skills.
During this year´s Indo-German Training Course Kiel put on the best summer weather. As in the years before, the response was so positive that we were able to welcome 31 participants to the Kiel School.
Our third course within five weeks was an English-speaking four-day Specialized Advanced Training Course. Twelve participants took part in the Training Programme, five of whom had already attended a basic training course in Kiel.
Two weeks after our successful start into the course year another basic training course was held, this time in German. Again, the main focus was given to access techniques, safety-steps, adnexal surgery and diagnostic hysteroscopy.
