DIPLOMA IN MINIMAL ACCESS SURGERY - DMAS
Diploma in Minimal Access Surgery - DMAS
Introducing the Diploma in Minimal Access Surgery (DMAS), a pivotal milestone in the laparoscopic surgical journey. Within the framework of this program, the learning process unfolds within the operating theater (OT), where participation and registration with the Medical Council of India (MCI) are imperative prerequisites for OT engagement. The extent of student involvement in laparoscopic procedures, including insufflation, port placement, and dissection, is contingent upon their individual experience, proficiency, and laparoscopic aptitude.
SMASTI has introduced unique concept of learning laparoscopic surgery by innovating a video disection class. Here the student displays the unedited video of the procedure in front of the faculty and the fellow students of the cases in which he/she was the part of the surgical team.
At every executional step, the faculty intervenes and comments on his/her performance and does the task analysis, performance analysis and coagnative analysis of the his/her actions. This mode of learning brings out the weakness and strenghts of the students and help in improving and rectifying his/her mistakes.
DMAS enthuses the students with caution and confidence at the same time and brings out the best out of him/her.
