Scientific evidence indicates that dry lab training for endoscopic surgical skills prior to training in the operating room, improves patients post-operative well-being substantially. The ESGE, EBCOG, EAGS, ENTOG, ACOG and AAGL, six leading professional organizations in gynaecology, join forces in a global recommendation regarding endoscopic surgical training and quality assurance.

It is a major breakthrough in the discipline of gynaecological endoscopic training to align the leading societies in training and education across Europe and the US on such an important matter. In Europe the ESGE developed the diploma curriculum called GESEA, Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment, taking into account this recommendation.
