National Training Programme in Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery

As part of the NTP the MATTU, in association with The Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford, offer an in-reach laparoscopic colorectal training programme for appropriate applicants. Surgeons and their teams will have the opportunity to operate in an ideal and state of the art operating theatre on their own patients with the support of the training surgeon. The dedicated operating lists will be staffed by nurses and anaesthetists experienced in managing complex laparoscopic procedures who are used to the training environment. It is anticipated that each surgeon will have access to up to 10 all day theatre lists over the period of 1 year and no more than one surgeon or one team will be present at any given list. The training opportunity will be focused purely on the training surgeon. Each list will have no more than two cases to allow plenty of time in an unhurried and supportive environment. The days operating will be supplemented by access to a training room within the theatre complex with the capacity for watching live surgery, reviewing edited and unedited videos from a video library as well as the trainees own recordings of the days surgery. Training stations for practicing laparoscopic skills are also available on site.
