Extremely well organized

This course was extremely well organized. The main instructors (Erwan, Marjorie + Antoine) were excellent. They knew the Da Vinci systems well + able to explain everything in English well. The lunches + social event was a nice bonus that I did not expect.

It makes you grow confidence and manuality in the robotic interaction

This course is very well structured with a great amount of practical activity. It makes you grow confidence and manuality in the robotic interaction. The staff is very prepared and professional and is always careful in correcting your mistakes and guiding you in order to learn the best. I am very satisfied from this course and expecially from the high level of the Nancy Surgical School and the Stan Institute. I will remain in contact for further new courses.

The program is perfectly structured

Stan Institute represents an amazing team doing a great job in helping surgeons to make first steps, or to improve in the field of robotics. The program is perfectly structured leading at the end of the week to a great level of confidence regarding control over the da Vinci system.
I will definitely recommend this course to all my colleagues who want a smooth start in robotic surgery. I want to thank all members of Stan Institute: Marjorie, Erwan, Jean Pierre and the medical staff that supports you! It was an intense week which gave me the basic skills and confidence. Keep doing that good job and expect more participants from Germany in the future! Hope to see you again!

Excellent course run by a top notch team

The course – well organized with lots of practical experience on the trainer building up nicely to a wet lab experience. Taught the essentials on the robot itself and the team required. Builds basics and confidence to take the robotic surgery practice forward. Intense hours.

The staff – friendly and knowledgeable. Willing to help whenever needed and attentive to details.

The city – beautiful and full of history.

Would highly recommend this diploma for anyone wanting to establish a practice in robotic surgery.

Essential training

Extremely well organized and comprehensive week.
Surrounded by a professional team, each workshop has been designed to improve each of the necessary sectors, the good practice of the robotic approach.
Despite a great experience in laparoscopic surgery, I can not conceive to begin its robotic activity without such training.
Intensive days but in the end … what a reward and “facility” during the first “In vivo” case.
I have advised this Diploma of the STAN INSTITUTE to all my colleagues, including those who threw themselves into there first case without this training.
Workshops oriented towards certain pathologies are being organized … I will certainly be leaving considering the level of rigor and professionalism
