General Open Surgery


With surgical training, the goal is to produce a surgeon who is highly competent and confident in performing general open surgery procedures; and thereby mitigate the risks of complications.

The curriculum development for the radical inguinal orchidectomy and open nephrectomy procedures are currently being undertaken by the EAU Working Group on General Open Surgery. A cognitive task analysis for each procedure has been created, and Delphi surveys are currently being conducted to achieve consensus on the steps involved. Additionally, various models for basic training are being explored to ensure comprehensive training and education.
