The Official Launch of GESEA4EU Project

Dear friends and colleagues,

ESGE is delighted to announce the official launch of the new GESEA4EU project which will expand the offer of standardised training and certification in the important field of Gynaecological Endoscopy

About the Project

Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment (GESEA) is a structured educational programme for Gynaecological Endoscopy providing training, certification and skill advancement leading to surgical competence. GESEA4EU is a two year project supported by the European Union that will standardise the GESEA training offer already provided to surgeons and expand it to meet the training needs of other healthcare professionals including nurses and supporting non-clinical staff.

This innovative cross-border project brings together sixteen partners from eight European countries who will expand the existing GESEA offer in twelve centres to nine new centres in Northern and Eastern Europe.

“The importance of training in endoscopic surgery is undisputed and so the creation of an international project involving 15 different countries is a great source of pride for our society.” Dr. Federica Campolo, GESEA4EU coordinator, ESGE/Fondazione Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli, Italy.

“Preparatory activities for standardising training have started. Our first efforts are going into mapping the diverse simulation training tools, methods and programmes currently employed at GESEA Training and Diploma Centres in the Consortium.” Dr. Istvan Argay, European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS)
