Dear Colleagues,

It is our proud privilege to announce the “5th Advanced Laparoscopic Live Surgery Workshop cum CME” organized in the beautiful city of Shillong, also known as the “Scotland of the East”.
Nazareth Hospital, Shillong has been conducting this “2 yearly workshop cum CME” for past 9 years in an attempt to help the young budding surgeons of this region to share knowledge and to interact with the National level Faculties. This time we have gone a step ahead to have the AMASI Skill course and FMAS examination right after the conference. The course aims to continue the system of Accreditation initiated by AMASI, for the practicing surgeons and gynecologists of the nation. The course provides an ideal platform to learn the basics and also improve and upgrade the skills required during laparoscopic surgeries.
A written examination (MCQ) along with viva voce including skill tests will be conducted on the last day. The successful candidates will be awarded the “FELLOWSHIP OF MINIMAL ACCESS SURGERY (FMAS).”

With warm regards
