Practical Skills

The Academy has developed a series of tools and methods for training and testing of practical endoscopic skills:

  • the Laparoscopic Skills Training and Testing model (LASTT)
  • the Suturing Training and Testing model (SUTT)
  • the Hysteroscopic Training and Testing model (HYSTT)

The tools mentioned can be obtained through the website of IDTM. Self-evaluation of your exercises and progress of your performances can be accessed by submitting the individual scores through an online scoring platform. Furthermore, e-learning modules, home training programmes (E-knot) and information on recognized training courses are provided via our website.
