Training is a high priority of the McGill Minimally Invasive Surgical Program.
The McGill MIS simulation lab (19th floor, MGH) has been extensively used by practicing surgeons in general surgery, gynecology, urology, and otolaryngology to develop and enhance their fundamental skills in video-endoscopic surgery.
New MIS operating rooms at the GLEN have added the capabilities of telestration and video-conferencing to augment the educational resources of our program. Digital recordings in the operating room can be synthesized into practical educational resources for resident and continuing medical education programs.
We maintain a large multimedia library of MIS texts, journals, and videos for the use of our residents and fellows.
