IHU Strasbourg is now approved as an international FLS testing center

Why Take The FLS Test?

IHU Strasbourg is now an official Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS) testing center. The first outside the United States.

FLS is a comprehensive web-based education module that includes hands-on skills training and an assessment tool designed to teach the physiology, fundamental knowledge, and technical skills required in basic laparoscopic surgery.

Our goal is to provide practicing physicians as well as surgeons in training an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of laparoscopic surgery in a consistent, scientifically accepted format; and to test cognitive, surgical decision-making, and technical skills, all with the goal of improving the quality of patient care.

FLS was designed for surgeons to learn and practice laparoscopic skills, as well as directly measure and document those skills.

The FLS Test measures cognitive knowledge, case/problem management skills and manual dexterity. The FLS program content has been endorsed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and is a joint educational offering of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopy Surgery (SAGES) and ACS. Surgeons who pass the FLS exam receive a certificate from both the ACS and SAGES. FLS is also CME accredited.

IHU Strasbourg facilities offer two FLS testing stations. Testing is offered on a regular basis and practice sessions can be arranged.
