Candidates can attend around 25 to 30 surgeries in this span of 2 weeks on various cases (depending on case availability).
Candidates can scrub in as an assistant during each surgery. Initial few days you will be taught how to use the laparoscopic camera and to visualise better. Unless you learn how to control the camera and improve visualisation, you may not be able to instruct your camera person while operating.
