Robotics Mentorship Program

The AFS has partnered with Intuitive to develop a Foregut Robotic Mentorship Program.

  • For surgeons with moderate experience in foregut and some experience with the DaVinci robots. Must have commitment to developing expertise in both.
  • A unique opportunity to participate in a mentored pathway to master foregut procedures using DaVinci robotic technology.
  • All participants will follow a six month curriculum under the guidance of a dedicated AFS mentor designed to help surgeons meet their goals while learning a new modality.
  • The mentees will have the opportunity to work with the same mentor surgeon throughout their learning curve/experience.
  • Participants will work together to share learnings and build professional relationships throughout the curriculum and beyond!
  • Case observation, advanced foregut surgery hands-on lab, and proctored 1-2 days of robotic foregut cases with mentor (expenses covered)
