SERGS Curriculum - Level 1 Exam

SERGS Curriculum Level 1 is aimed at young trainees and fellows who are considering robotic surgery in their future but have not operated by a robot.


Exam will be divided in 2 parts:

Part 1: You will have 3 lectures about robotic surgery in gynecology, step by step robotic hysterectomy and emergency procedures in robotic surgery.

These lectures will be followed by a Q/A session and you will have to complete a test of MCQ about the lectures.


Part 2: After a 15-30 minutes warming up period, your will have to complete 7 exercises on the simulator in 1 hour.


The list of exercise you will have to complete is:

  • Ring rollercoaster
  • Railroad track efficiency
  • Ring tower transfer
  • 4th arm cutting
  • Vessel energy dissection
  • Knot tying
  • Puzzle piece dissection


Skill assessment will be done either with an actual robotic console using the backpack simulator, or with a validated simulator. The warming up session will give you time to adjust to the new environment.

After sucessfully completing the exam, participants are awarded with SERGS Curriculum Level 1 Certificate of competency in basic skills of robotic surgery.
