BACKGROUND Surgery residents may take years away from clinical responsibilities for dedicated research time. As part of a longitudinal project, the study aim was to investigate residents' perceptions of clinical skill reduction during dedicated research time. Our hypothesis was that residents would perceive a greater potential reduction in skill during(More)
BACKGROUND The study aim was to identify residents' coordination between dominant and nondominant hands while grasping for sutures in a laparoscopic ventral hernia repair procedure simulation. We hypothesize residents will rely on their dominant and nondominant hands unequally while grasping for suture. METHODS Surgical residents had 15 min to complete(More)
BACKGROUND The study aimed to validate an error checklist for simulated laparoscopic ventral hernia (LVH) repair procedures. We hypothesize that residents' errors can be assessed with a structured checklist and the results will correlate significantly with procedural outcomes. METHODS Senior residents' (N = 7) performance on a LVH simulator were(More)
INTRODUCTION Skills decay is a known risk for surgical residents who have dedicated research time. We hypothesize that simulation-based assessments will reveal significant differences in perceived skill decay when assessing a variety of clinical scenarios in a longitudinal fashion. METHODS Residents (N = 46; Returning: n = 16, New: n = 30) completed four(More)
