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 Robotic surgery course

Extremely well structured and curated program
warm cheerful atmosphere
Aviation veterans ( Erwan,Marjorie,Jean Pierre) along with Drs Prof J.Hubert/Nicolas possess a range of skills to truly provide a transformational experience
Essential for those who intend to start robotic surgical practice
Strenuous course but distinctly worthwhile
would recommend it to anyone intending a career in robotic surgery !!

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
