Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS)

FLS is a comprehensive web-based education module that includes a hands-on skills training component and assessment tool designed to teach the physiology, fundamental knowledge and technical skills required in basic laparoscopic surgery.

Our goal is to provide surgical residents, fellows and practicing physicians an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of laparoscopic surgery in a consistent, scientifically accepted format; and to test cognitive, surgical decision-making and technical skills, all with the goal of improving the quality of patient care.

Course completion consists of two separate elements: completing the computer-based cognitive portion and demonstrating skills.
