European Training in Basic Robot Urological Skills (E-BRUS)

The European School of Urology (ESU) and the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS) offer a structured robotic training programme, to allow a fellow to independently and effectively perform a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. The full programme includes theoretical sessions, skills training (dry and wet laboratories), real-case observation in a training centre, bedside assistance, and mentored training at the console. Participants at the recognised host-centres go through the developed curriculum in a staged manner (modular training), guided by a local Mentor.

Aims and objectives

  • The participants will be able to perform a robot-assisted prostatectomy independently and effectively

Target audience: Advanced urologists who have performed the required minimum of 50 robot-assisted surgeries.
