Courses: Minimally Invasive Surgery for Rural Surgeons


Welcome to the SEESHA / KARUNYA UNIVERSITY online course on minimally invasive surgeries for rural surgeons. We would like to begin with sincerely thanking two organizations that are helping us.

  1. mdCurrent-India: They are sponsoring and hosting the online course. We thank them for having a separate page for the rural surgery articles at http://mdcurrent.in/camps-and-rural-healthcare/ and publishing many of our articles.
  2. LapGuru: LapGuru is an organization that transmits live surgery for those who would like to learn laparoscopic surgeries. You can register with LapGuru at lapguru.com and watch the gasless laparoscopy and other surgeries there. Free registration should suffice for watching the gasless laparoscopic surgeries there.
