Course Overview

This course is designed for surgeons and for all levels of the medical care team: primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, cardiologists to learn about the surgical applications of the robotic technology. The nurses, surgical techs and O.R. administration can learn more about the uniqueness of the robotic equipment. This program will reveal the O.R. management strategies for surgeon awareness of the Scripps Robotic Program and about the cost efficiencies and future applications. This is an opportunity for surgeons to share their experiences with the primary care providers. There will be a general session which will review the surgeon experience, accountability, and quality of care.
