Your Partner in Surgical Education
Advances in clinical technologies not only drive improvements in the way you deliver hernia care to patients – they also provide pathways to new skills and approaches that help build your practice. Covidien’s Hernia Clinical Education Continuum presents a wide variety of hernia education programs that refresh or enhance a practitioner’s knowledge of advanced minimally invasive surgeries, complex hernia and abdominal wall repair, and new techniques in hernia repair.
- Dinner Programs: Designed to offer hernia surgeons and medical staff a first look at new clinical techniques and practice-building procedures, each dinner program provides a high-level overview on a single topic.
- Didactic Symposia: If you want more in-depth knowledge about hernia repair, our Didactic Symposia explore each focus area in full, presenting the latest tools and techniques you need to build your practice and expand the options available to your patients.
- Master Class: An educational program offering comprehensive training in the performance of advanced laparoscopic hernia surgery, the Master Class combines didactic and hands-on laboratory instruction to expand your mastery of procedural specifics and patient management strategies.
- Clinical Immersion and Proctorship Network: Led by recognized hernia surgeons who have mastered the five hernia repair techniques covered in the Didactic Symposia, the Clinical Immersion and Proctorship Network offers two options for advanced experiential training: Clinical Immersion Courses that allow you to visit an advanced laparoscopic hernia surgeon’s practice to observe live surgery cases and tour the facility, and Proctorships in which a surgeon trainer comes to you to assist with your facility’s first advanced hernia repair case.
