Through the UPMC Center for Advanced Robotics Training (CART), UPMC thoracic surgeons are actively transforming years of experience in robotic surgery into applicable pathways to proficiency for surgeons and their teams.
The CART thoracic surgery program is highly customizable to address specific procedural interests—including advanced pulmonary, mediastinal, and/or esophageal procedures— as well as the individual skill levels and needs of participating physicians.
CART has developed a comprehensive training program, featuring both remote and in-person mentorship. The robotics training coursework in thoracic surgery encompasses a variety of critical concepts and techniques to support efficient skill development and effective application of the learned material.
Training surgeons are ultimately provided a level of familiarity with the robotic system that supports easier, more effective implementation of robotic surgery systems within their own hospitals.
