As laparoscopic surgery swept through Turkey during the last decade of the bygone millennium, there was total uncertainty and lack of consensus regarding the training aspect of this skilled superspeciality. While some surgeons insisted that training would be long and arduous, others said that having done so many open operations, they would take very little time in 'adapting' themselves. This training program introduced by Istanbul Goztepe Education and Research Hospital was an unique opportunity for the Gynaecologists and Surgeon to improve their skill. This training program was organized by Dr.F.Gökhan Göynümer during April 16th to 20th 2008.
