Essential training begins with didactic sessions focusing on the indications and contraindications for a given surgery, the instruments required and their safety aspects, the pertinent anatomy, and the possible associated complications.
Next, the laparoscopist needs to become familiarized with the equipment, first by handling the equipment under direct visualization, then by using a computerized endotrainer, followed by animal dissection. To progress beyond "tunnel vision", the surgeon must become completely comfortable with the equipment, ergonomics and task analysis of laparoscopic procedures. The interested candidates who has less time can take essential course but majority of candidates join our 2 week fellowship or four week fellowship and Diploma combined course.

Because laparoscopic surgery requires heavy reliance on complex equipment, something invariably goes wrong at some point during a procedure. To accelerate the trainee's ability to cope with problems, one can simulate intraoperative complications during a training course. As an example, the instructor may disconnect or clamp the insufflators cable or sabotage a trocar cannula by removing its gasket so that the introduced pneumoperitoneum is slowly lost. The student learns to address problems and track down the cause quickly in an organized manner. Often a cable has not been connected or is accidentally dislodged, which can cause the surgeon to lose or diminish laparoscopic vision-a scenario easily simulated in a training course.
In Essential Laparoscopic Training with "Hands On" simulated catastrophes and animate dissection enables the surgeons and gynecologists to learn to handle actual situations with calm, to prevent delays, and to make order from a situation that has the potential to become chaotic.
