Next May 26th, IRCAD (The Research Institute against Cancer of the Digestive Tract) will inaugurate the ASIA IRCAD – Taiwan, a Taiwan-based freshly built training center for continuing medical education in minimally invasive surgery, thanks to a fruitful partnership with Show Chwan Memorial Hospital in Taiwan. This center will benefit of the same rigorous scientific and technical qualities that have made the IRCAD-EITS in Strasbourg so popular, with the added bonus of an exquisite and accessible setting at the heart of Asia.
Equipped with the latest technical teaching technologies, the facility of approximately 7,300 square meters stands out as the largest training center for minimal access surgery in Asia.
The objective of ASIA IRCAD - Taiwan is twofold. It is geared up:
- to provide top quality training in minimally invasive surgery, and even non-invasive;
- to promote research and development in the field of new surgical computer-guided and robotic assisted technologies.
The very first course, an intensive course in laparoscopic general surgery, will be held from the 27th to the 30th of May, 2008. It will be organized by the IRCAD Faculty and International Scientific Committee. Six more courses will be held during the year 2008 at the ASIA IRCAD - Taiwan, including colorectal surgery, urological surgery, gynaecological surgery, and Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES).
