GESEA Programme Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment
What is GESEA?
Structured diploma programme for Gynaecological Endoscopy
The Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment (GESEA) programme is a structured diploma programme for Gynaecological Endoscopy. It trains and certifies knowledge and practical skills prior to surgical competence, and is the official diploma programme of the European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE).
The GESEA programme follows the European–American Joint Recommendation stating that each hospital teaching endoscopic surgery should make available an endoscopic dry lab for training and improving the proficiency of the endoscopic surgery skills of the physician.
The GESEA programme is coping with some of the current issues related to endoscopic surgery like:
- Excessive long learning curves in the conventional apprentice-tutor model and limited amount of endoscopic interventions in the teaching hospitals.
- Absence of dry labs for endoscopic surgery and limited accessibility of specific learning programmes.
- Absence of a universal accepted validated system of certification.
