The University of Rwanda is hosting, from 26th to 27th of September 2019, in Kigali, Rwanda, a joint Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and the 3rd Rwanda Biotechnology Conference. Since 2017, more efforts have been going on aiming at strengthening minimally invasive surgery (MIS) in Rwanda. Thanks to ARES-PFS2018, a training project supported by the Belgium government, a postgraduate diploma in MIS will be one of the professional training offers of the University of Rwanda. To successfully implement this program, the partnership with Medtronic allows to equip a laboratory for training on nonhuman models comprising a simulation lab (simlab) and wetlab for MIS practising on animal model (pig) as well as MIS platforms in university teaching hospitals to treat Rwanda patients while training the candidates to MIS. With such a strategy, trainees will gain skills and hands-on experience before moving to clinical training phase (Never practise for the first time on a patient). A curriculum to train future MIS Trainers was developed and the implementation has been going on since January 2019.
