The lack of globally established standards for learning urological laparoscopy has not prevented laparoscopic techniques from evolution and continuous development. Laparoscopy coexists with robotic surgery today, and in the last decade there have been many techniques that have undergone a boom with the use of a laparoscopic approach (total and partial nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, colposacropexy, etc.). We intend to evaluate the progressive incorporation of different surgical techniques in the laparoscopic learning program and, on the other hand, to analyze the evolution of training programs in urological laparoscopy to bring this type of techniques within the hospital surgical activity.

We describe our 30-years experience in different training programs in urological laparoscopy that have been sponsored by the Spanish Association of Urology (AEU), and have undergone several validity studies to assess their capacity in order to evaluate effectively basic and advanced laparoscopic skills.

We will also highlight the current and future trend towards training models based on surgical competences where individualized training, accreditation and specialization of tutors is crucial, and where the increase in the use of training and evaluation methods based on the simulation are increasingly common.
