The School of Modern Technology: European Technology- Based Curriculum in Health Sciences (EuroSOMT) is a European Union project approved and granted by the European Commission as an ERASMUS+ strategic partnership project in the field of higher education, training and youth programme
EuroSOMT is the first European Hub for simulation-based curriculum in functional urologic surgery under umbrella of the ICS School of Modern Technology. Four leading universities and one urology society are involved, with a high respect in the field of education are included in the project; Hacettepe University (Turkey), KU Leuven (Belgium), Universita Degli Studi Di Perugia (Italy), International Continence Society (UK), Chosun University (South Korea).
EuroSOMT project consists of 4 intellectual outcomes; (a) Production of patient-specific CT-reconstructed 3D printed surgical models with using patient/cadaver radiologic data and standard cadaveric surgical models (b) Creation of Virtual /Augmented Reality Models and International 3D Standardization of Models (c) Establishment Appropriate Syllabus and Evaluation Forms for Students and Trainees (d) Web-based training module/e-Learning portal. The achievement of the project outcomes is totally related to the achievement of learning, training and teaching activities for creation standardized simulation-based functional urology surgical syllabus and curriculum with your active participation from various level of skills. We created procedure-based 3D printed simulators, VR simulators for your practical sessions.
Each participant can undertake functional urologic surgeries on these models. LTT has theoretical and practical sessions. We use patient-specific reconstructed 3D printed and virtual reality models for anatomic teaching purposes in surgical procedures.
On behalf of EuroSOMT Working Group, I would like to invite you to join LTT activities and experience the outstanding surgical experience within the scope of EuroSOMT.
Up to €890 in funding (for travel, transport, hotel, subsistence) is available for ICS Urologist member applicants to attend the first LTT event. This will be held in Ankara, Turkey over 20-24 April 2022.
