Cuschieri Skills Centre

The Cuschieri Skills centre (CSC) is located in Ninewells Hospital & Medical School, and this State-of-the-art surgical skills teaching facility was opened in 1992 by Professor Sir Alfred Cuschieri to provide a safe environment for teaching and training in laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery.

The Centre currently provides a large range of skills training courses in laparoscopic general surgery and also training courses in a variety of other surgical specialties (e.g. ENT, endoscopy, urology, orthopaedics) at basic, intermediate and advanced levels.

The mission of the Cuschieri Skills Centre is to provide high quality skills training to meet the learning requirements of local, national and international healthcare professionals within the surgical specialties.
