Welcome Message

It gives us immense pleasure to invite you to the AMASICON Skill Course and FMAS Examination at Aster Medcity, Kochi. The skill course is an Academic and Accreditation activity of the Association of Minimal Access Surgeons of India, a specialist association of ASI

The aim of this skill course is to train the upcoming laparoscopic surgeons in standardized laparoscopic surgical techniques, and to update the knowledge and current trends in minimal access surgery. The skill course is aimed to benefit both surgeons and Gynecologists who pursue minimal access surgery. During the course of 3 days, comprehensive lectures and videos of both basic and advanced laparoscopic surgeries would be discussed by experts in the respective fields. In addition, there will be hands on training for basic laparoscopic techniques like suturing and knotting.

A written examination and viva voce will be conducted on the last day of the skill course. Successful candidates will be awarded Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery (FMAS) during the Next National AMASI Conference to be held at Cochin in October 2017.

All Consultant Surgeons, Gynaecologists including the Post Graduates who are interested in the field are requested to join us at Aster Medcity on August 18th to 20th 2017. We promise a scientifically sumptuous academic feast during the 3 days.
