The All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, and India Medtronic Pvt Ltd have entered into a collaborative agreement to co-create and develop a robotic training facility at the premier hospital here.
The AIIMS, Delhi, has already floated an expression of interest to establish a robotic training facility on its campus.
"In line with that, AIIMS, New Delhi, and India Medtronic Pvt Ltd. have entered into a collaborative agreement to co-create and develop a robotic training facility which will deliver clinical education and impart surgical robotic skills on a not-for-profit basis to residents and faculties of AIIMS and other teaching institutes with MeHNAT (Medtronic Hugo and AIIMS training) in robotic surgery," a statement said.
The aim is to upskill healthcare professionals on robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgeries through technical and procedural training.
This in turn will enrich the clinical community and enhance patient outcomes by utilizing procedural and evidence-based medical education activities.
This is the first-of-its-kind robotic training facility for healthcare professionals in a government setup in India and also the first faculty-led procedural training centre in the Asia-Pacific region.
