The Robotic Academy Intuitve Naples is one of the twenty official Intuitive training centers in the world thus RAIN provides to train the new generations of surgeons that will operate through the robot. In 2017, Intuitive Surgical, the global producer of daVinci Robotic System, has signed an agreement with Cardarelli Hospital of Naples (South of Italy) and AB Medica, which provides the system to Italy, Spain, Portugal and Slovenia, identifying the Centre of Biotechnology as the official training Centre for the robotic surgery. The RAIN (Robotic Academy Intuitive Naples) is the result of the synergy between the participants; its main objective is to train and to educate surgeons from all over the world, coming from private and public institutions, both national and international, so as to teach them how to use the daVinci robotic system. Particularly, the training activities focus their drive towards an upward path, thanks to the complete training programs offered: starting from a base levels, through the use of simulator, the pelvic trainer and animal models, the surgeon has the chance to test his skills with human specimens and to survey on clinical cases observation. The courses involved the participation of surgeons from European and Mediterranean countries (Italy, Cyprus, Greece, Great Britain, Israel, Spain, Portugal, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Romania and Sweden). The surgical specialties involved are: urology, general surgery, gynecology and thoracic surgery. The RAIN, is located in a strategic area (Hospital Area) and provides its facilities to hospitals that are part of the GRIO (Inter-Hospital Robotic Group) that, like the Cardarelli, have a robotic surgical system and can improve the knowledge of students by transferring the acquired know-how to them.
