Presentation
The Human Cadaveric Advanced Laparoscopic Urology Course is an innovative course for surgical training. This 3-day course should provide a surgical experience that is the closest possible to reality. The programme will cover a wide range of techniques of urological laparoscopy. During the course each participant will have an opportunity to get “hands on” experience in various laparoscopic techniques and their practice will be made under 19 experts supervision. This course is limited to 12 participants with previous basic laparoscopy skills, divided by 4 OR tables (3 participants per table).

Objectives
General Objective:
Improvement of the participant’s skills in laparoscopic surgery through training models very similar to life surgery.
Learning Objectives:
