3D Systems partners with leading societies, industries and training centers to ensure the excellent quality of our training solutions:

3D Systems partners with EAU to support hands-on training for robotic surgery. For the first time, the RobotiX Mentor simulator for robotic-assisted surgery will be available during the ESU/ERUS Hands-on training in Robotic surgery courses during the EAU 2016 Annual Congress in Munich.

3D Systems and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) have collaboratively developed a simulation-based endoscopic hands-on skills assessment system for their Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES) program.

SAGES curricula includes both didactic and simulation-based educational elements, followed by a high-stakes validated exam to assess both knowledge and hands-on proficiency.


3D Systems and the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) have joined forces on several initiatives designed to improve patient safety and outcomes through advanced bronchoscopy education. The BRONCH Express, an innovative virtual reality simulator for EBUS-TBNA was co-developed to provide a meaningful yet affordable hands-on training solution for the growing demand for EBUS-TBNA training and qualification.

CHEST is the global leader in advancing best patient outcomes with a mission to champion the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chest diseases through education, communication, and research.

3D Systems and the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) have joined forces to develop a Laparoscopic Skills Curriculum.
This Curriculum will comprise both didactic and skills development components, including eLearning and simulation-based assessment elements.

3D Systems developed in conjunction with and endorsed by the American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (AABIP) a Bronchoscopic Essential Skills Module.

The European Surgical Institute (ESI), Johnson & Johnson MEDICAL GmbH, is one of Europe’s leading centers for Continuing Medical Education (CME). Our mission is to measurably improve the success of individuals and organizations involved in the health care industry.

“3D System LAP Mentor simulators are utilized as an integral part of nearly all workshops and training sessions involving laparoscopic surgery. MentorLearn has assisted us in automating and reusing our standardized simulation courses and group management, making the administration tasks much easier “, Senior Manager Virtual Reality Technology, Gabi Punner.

3D Systems and VirtaMed have joined forces to provide surgeons the most advanced training systems available for diagnostic and therapeutic hysteroscopy for gynecologists (VirtaMed HystSim) and transurethral resection of the prostate for urologists (VirtaMed TURPSim).

VirtaMed is a Swiss company with an interdisciplinary background in medicine and engineering. Its mission is to develop state-of-the-art training tools for endoscopic surgery of highest possible realism, all with the ultimate goal to improve the quality of patient care.

“3D Systems is a partner that will ensure the global availability of HYST and TURP simulators. We truly appreciate 3D Systems’ commitment to provide the best possible training for surgeons in every field”, says VirtaMed CEO Dr. Stefan Tuchschmid.
