AAGL selects HystAR to power EMIGS across North America

In October 2023, Inovus Medical announced an innovative new partnership with the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL), and global leader in women’s health, Hologic. The partnership will result in the provision of Inovus’ high fidelity hysteroscopy simulators, HystAR, to all ACGME approved residency programs across North America. In addition to the simulators being provided to all residency sites, the partnership will provide access to Inovus’ digital surgery platform, Totum to all residents working towards their EMIGS certification.

This collaboration will strengthen our ability to offer hysteroscopy simulation for our residents, and to integrate advanced tools to aid our trainees in pursuing excellence in surgical training.

The premier global association in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, AAGL began offering the EMIGS validated Training and Testing Program in 2022 to provide a gynecology specific cognitive and skills test that would allow OBGYN residents to meet the Surgical Skills Program standard for the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology examination. In late 2022, Inovus Medical announced it had been contracted as the manufacturing and delivery partner for the EMIGS skills tasks. This new partnership will result in the digitalization of the EMIGS program, with the skills tasks being integrated into Inovus’ hybrid surgical simulators and digital surgery platform, Totum.
