Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS)

Recognizing the importance of improving surgical technical skills and enhancing patient safety, Covidien, a leading manufacturer of medical devices and supplies, has created The Covidien Educational Fund.  This generous gift supports the introduction of the FLS Educational program into North American residency and fellowship training. Through this grant, FLS is available to program directors to use as a standardized educational tool for teaching and verification of learning of their trainees. The Covidien Educational Fund brings no-cost training and testing directly to over 250 surgical residency programs in the United States and Canada, reaching thousands of surgeons-in-training over a three-year period, as well as MIS/HPB/colorectal fellowships for one year.
