The PALES leadership takes cognizance of the comments, your sentiments and issues raised on the “Recertification program”.
As a means of safety and quality assurance the BASIC LAPAROSCOPY COURSE (BLC) is intended for all General Surgery practitioners who are Fellows of PALES. This is a complement to our ZEROBDI campaign, designed to be a didactic refresher course followed by a post-test. Failure to attain the MPL will NOT result in the disenfranchisement or restriction of a Fellow to practice. It is a post-course evaluation and self-assessment of your comprehension to the course.
This CSE course will be offered FREE of charge to active fellows starting 2023 during the PALES mid-year convention and subsequently, will be offered as pre congress activity and thru ONLINE platform.
It is the mission of PALES to raise and sustain the highest quality of care in minimally invasive in the country.
In view thereof, we are encouraging all fellows / members of PALES to attend.
Thank you and Happy holidays everyone 🎄
Raymond Andrew G. Ong, MD, FPALES
