After completing Clinical Training in Laparoscopic Colectomy, the participating surgeons will be able to:

  • Know the parameters that maximise the results of the interventions in the large bowel and the rectum.
  • Evaluate the new methods of minimally invasive surgery of the large bowel.
  • Be aware of new developments in colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease and acute diverticulitis.

In addition, they will have gained sufficient experience to be able to:
