The International Center for Endoscopic Surgery (CICE) was created in 1990 by Professor Maurice-Antoine Bruhat in the joint dynamics of the evolution of surgical techniques and new technologies of the image.

The major innovation represented by laparoscopy in the practice of surgical techniques has simultaneously resulted in a growing educational interest. Recognized leader of this minimally invasive surgery in gynecology, the Clermont team has, parallel to its clinical activity felt the establishment of an experimental simulation center dedicated to this teaching.

The courses provided at CICE, from the introduction to advanced techniques is aimed at interns and clinical leaders as well as more experienced surgeons, as well as all other surgical specialties. Practical assessments are also part of the targeted objectives.

The CICE welcomes more than 1000 people from all national and international backgrounds each year. Its latest generation technical platform is open to other specialties and collaborations, particularly with interventional imaging.

Research and development, evaluation and design of new tools, basic research and the creation of multimedia teaching aids are other CICE activities.

The Center, with the partnership of hospital services, reserves the possibility of hosting as part of the companionship of foreign visiting doctors for short or long stays.
