Recently Medical Training Tools’s TD-Boxes and models played a central role in an introductory training session conducted by Dr. Stijn Heyman of the ETCA, Europe’s foremost training institute specializing in endoscopy in Antwerp. A group of surgical interns practiced basic skills in the morning and the afternoon session was devoted to therapeutic skills such as biopsies and clip placement. Four stations were used, three using porcine models. The fourth, the foreign-body-removal unit, used MTT’s silicone upper-GI model. For the convenience of a ‘no-hassle’ training, MTT provided all models used.
It was an enjoyable initial collaboration, hopefully the first of many!
