New Delhi, 18th March 2023: AIIMS has floated an expression of interest to establish a robotic training facility at AIIMS, New Delhi. In line with that, AIIMS, New Delhi & 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 & faculties of AIIMS, and other teaching institutes with MeHNAT (Medtronic Hugo and AIIMS training) in robotic surgery.
The aim is to train healthcare professionals on robotic associated minimally invasive surgeries through technical & procedural training. This in turn will enrich the clinical community and enhance patient outcomes utilizing procedural & 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 it is the first faculty-led procedural training centre in the entire Asia-Pacific (APAC) region of the world.
