This will be carried out by: Workshops all through the year to train physicians to master the basic and advanced knowledge about endoscopy in most specialties.
ALEXEA was founded in 2005, as the first training center in Middle East, Egypt for developing the skills required to perform endoscopic surgical procedures.
The creation of ALEXEA was only possible through the enthusiasm and support of the founding committee, and colleagues from all endoscopic surgery fields.
Since its foundation, and with the help of professional, national and international trainers, ALEXEA has organized several training courses in Bariatric, Colorectal, General, Gynecological, Pediatric and Urologic surgery, which have been met with great success and enthusiastic response from both participants and trainers.
