Advancing the knowledge and skill-set in Gynecologic surgery is the goal of the Center for Advancement of Minimally-Invasive Pelvic Surgery (CAMPS) at CAMLS. Obstetricians and gynecologists can learn and hone their laparoscopic skills to run paralleled integration of well renowned physicians and resources. Allocating a space for surgeons and soon to be surgeons to perfect their surgical proficiency can only improve the quality and scope of minimally-invasive pelvic surgery. CAMPS is reinventing the way medical education, simulation technology, and medicine are working together in ways not possible elsewhere.

The impressive curriculum supplied by CAMPS’ faculty distinguishes it apart from other OBGYN Continuing Medical Education Programs through its procedural based training, and comprehensive programs that are designed to promote the best practices and highest level of education. Each of the programs are taught by world renowned experts in pelvic surgery that are dedicated to giving surgeons the confidence and competence to go back to their practice and become more efficient in the Operating Room. This is the ideal spot for surgeons from around the country to come and train to the newest medical techniques with state of the art equipment in an effort to make themselves the best surgeon possible.


To advance knowledge and skill-set in Minimally-Invasive Pelvic Surgery through innovative and state-of-the-art educational and training programs.
