Surgery in Motion School is the main portal for urologists where they can link up and share video-content on surgical procedures. SiM aims to stimulate learning and trigger a critical view of surgical procedures and techniques and their evidence-based application in clinical practice.
The SiM platform fulfils the needs of surgical residents and surgeons at a time when expectations are high for surgeons to possess adept surgical skills with new technologies, while facing the current reality of less training hours due to work-hour restrictions and lack of opportunities.
Surgery in Motion School offers trainees and surgeons a systematic training scheme outside of work, at their own convenience and pace. The platform includes top-notch videos of urological surgical procedures performed by the world’s best specialists, and explained in a step-by-step manner through segmented videos of one to two minutes. Residents and urologists can easily navigate the video for surgical techniques and procedures, complementing their theoretical education and motivating them to discuss and share content with other users.
The European Association of Urology is a non-profit organisation which supports medical professionals working in the field of urology through many of its scientific, professional, educational and awareness-building initiatives. The overarching mission is to raise the level of urological care in Europe, and for many years this has been done through educational and scientific programmes aimed at urologists.
Today the EAU represents more than 15,000 medical professionals working in Europe and beyond its borders. One of the initiatives is the development of Patient Information, providing reliable patient information on urological diseases which takes into account the latest scientific evidence, expert recommendations, and the needs of patients. www.uroweb.org
