What is the GESEA Educational Programme?

The Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgical Education and Assessment (GESEA) programme is a structured educational 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.

The GESEA Educational 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 Educational Programme offers a complete approach to endoscopic education. It spans over three distinct levels offering learning modules for all levels of proficiency.

It includes the GESEA Certification Pathway providing participants with the knowledge and psychomotor skills necessary to enter the operating room or to start supervised basic endoscopic procedures. Furthermore, it offers advanced masterclasses, workshops and clinical immersions.
