Education


The Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery (CMIS) at The Ohio State University is committed to the ongoing surgical training of medical students, residents, fellows, allied health professionals, and practicing physicians. We have offered a number of outstanding educational opportunities throughout the years and to date we have trained over 1200 surgeons in minimally invasive approaches to surgical procedures. While we are proud of our accomplishments in the educational realm, we look forward to offering more training to a variety of learners. We remain committed to organizing training on clinical applications of surgical technology, such as single incision laparoscopy, Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES), minimally invasive colorectal surgery, laparoscopic hernia repair, bariatric and metabolic diseases including laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomies and reflux disease. The goal of our education program is to raise the quality of technology in minimally invasive surgery and patient care by improving access to highly trained advanced medical and surgical care specialists.
