Proximie, the health platform and Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) have announced the launch of the virtual training course, starting in thoracic robotic-assisted surgery.

The initiative will democratise and widen global access to medical education and advanced surgical techniques.

Duration of Proximie’s programme

With the six-week virtual observership programme, healthcare professionals can remotely engage in interactive learning experiences – to understand the robotic-assisted surgery techniques.

Proximie’s telepresence capability will allow participants to watch thoracic robotic-assisted surgeries live and ask questions to GSTT’s operating surgeons – to build knowledge and obtain insight.
