While the use of robotic surgical technology has experienced exponential growth in many parts of the world and across numerous specialties, including bariatric surgery, standardized training and credentialing of robotic surgeons unfortunately remains in a nascent state. The need for a standardized robotic training curriculum is much needed and long overdue. The lack of a standardized training curriculum lends itself to serious disparity in the quality of robotic training depending on trainee location and specialty.
