Sydney Robotics Masterclass Series

The RPA Institute of Academic Surgery and Sydney Local Health District hosted the Sydney Robotics Masterclass on Saturday 29 June 2019. A more practical program than the Sydney Robotics Summit, this comprehensive program included hands on teaching focusing on multidisciplinary training and education in robotic surgery.   

The day was divided into two programs which will run concurrently. The first being a half day robotic seminar targeted at anyone with a general interest in robotic surgery including junior doctors, nurses, researchers and students focusing on the various surgical robotic devices being used, the variety of surgical robotic procedures and the future of robotic surgery.

The second part of the program was specialty based robotic workshops. Aimed at fellows, senior surgical registrars and early career robotic surgery consultants, these practical workshops focused on surgical skills and technique within robotic-assisted surgery providing an intimate tutorial session discussing cases, procedures and the robotic devices.

Sydney Robotics Summit

The Sydney Robotics Summit is a  multi-disciplinary and multi-specialty surgical conference. Hosted by the Institute of Academic Surgery at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, the conference is unique within Australia and focuses on key topics from international and local experts in robotic surgery. The aim of the conference is to broaden the registrant’s knowledge and experience of the latest developments in robotic surgery and to provide an opportunity for panel discussions, question and answer sessions, case reviews and specific surgical demonstrations.

First held in 2017, the Summit has hosted over 1000 delegates in the first two years from across a variety of disciplines including  surgical consultants, anaesthetists, nurses, allied health, junior medical officers, researchers and medical students, as well as administration and industry professionals. Programs have included live surgeries, over 70 international and local robotic surgeons and 6 surgical specialties.

The Summit conference has specialty programs for urology, colorectal, upper GI, cardiothoracic, head and neck, ENT, orthopaedics, benign gynaecology and gynae-oncology as well as nursing.

The third Sydney Robotics Summit is confirmed for June 2020 with the program being delivered  in conjunction with internationally renowned surgical group; Society of Robotics Surgery.
