Objectives: In this study, it was aimed to evaluate the knowledge and skills of gynecologists and obstetricians about cystoscopy theoretically and practically during the two-day urogynecology course. Materials and Methods: Thirty-eight gynecologists and obstetricians aged 2955 were simultaneously enrolled in cystoscopy training and evaluation in the urogynecology course, which includes theoretical, fresh cadaver and live surgery training stages. In addition, a theoretical evaluation was made with quizzes before and after fresh cadaver training. Finally, 6 months after the training, all trainees were called by phone and detailed information about their surgical experiences was obtained after the course. Results: After the cadaver training, it was observed that the time and motion scores and instrument handling scores of the trainees increased significantly on the patients. Conclusion: With surgical courses and simulations, the use of cystoscopy should be increased in the diagnosis and management of complications in urogynecological surgical procedures during and after the residency training of gynecologists and obstetricians.
