|Dear Dr Rajak
After successful completion of laparoscopic and robotic surgery training at World Laparoscopy Hospital the surgeons and gynecologist has to appear in MCQ exam conducted by World Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons in order to get Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery. In this exam multiple choice questions will be asked from the topics which already been taught during the course. Questions will be asked also from the clinical experience which you have gathered during your stay at World Laparoscopy Hospital.
The fail rate for the Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery is only 2 to 3% (very low for a certifying exam). We have two exam of half an hour duration each. First exam will be on 7th of every month and second on 12th of every month. If you fail one or both parts, you just take it again. You have an eligibility window of 5 years from the date of the WALS declaring you eligible. You can work as an attending as long as you are eligible.
If someone still cannot pass and their eligibility expires, then they can apply for an extension of their further free refresher course conducted at World Laparoscopy Hospital based on practice experience. I believe everyone pretty much passes eventually once they have shown little sincerity while taking Hands On training at World Laparoscopy Hospital. It is not necessary to get panicked by the phobia of Fellowship exam.
The doctors who are enrolled for Fellowship and Diploma integrated course they have to clear one OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Exam on 25th of the month). This is a clinical exam in which they have to demonstrate different type of extracorporeal and intracorporeal knots in front of faculty in lab. The timing of this OSCE exam is recorded and best performer of this exam is awarded as TOP GUN of the batch.
Even from Fellowship of Minimal Access Surgery one Topper from the surgeon and one Topper from Gynecologist will be given merit certificate and prize and momento during the convocation of Fellowship. Convocation of Fellowship in Minimal Access surgery is being celebrated every month on 14th at 2:30pm at conference hall of pacific hotel and convocation of Diploma is there every month on 28th of the month.
While the pressure to perform can act as a motivator, it can also be devastating to individuals who tie their self-worth to the outcome of these fellowship and Diploma exam.

|Work hard to pass the exam. If you fail an examination at World Laparoscopy Hospital they wont give you the certificate, it means you have not yet master the subject. With diligent study and understanding, you will succeed in passing the exams.

|Question in exam will be asked from general surgery or only laparoscopic surgery? Will it be sufficient to read only the textbook or question will be from practical clinical skill of Minimal Access Surgery?

|Our method of teaching is so practical that it is not possible to fail in exam of fellowship or diploma of minimal access surgery unless you are completely ignoring the practical Hands On training part. Thats why we have made it mandatory to have 100% attendance. Most of the questions will be asked from practical day to day problems and complications of laparoscopy and its management so I don't think any average student will fail. However, your aim should be to become a topper because one topper from surgeon and one topper from gynecologist will get a special merit certificate and trophy.
