BACKGROUND Studies have demonstrated the beneficial effect of training novice laparoscopic surgeons using virtual reality (VR) simulators, although there is still no consensus regarding an optimal VR training curriculum. This study aims to establish and validate a structured VR curriculum to provide an evidence-based approach for laparoscopic training programmes. METHODS The minimally invasive VR simulator (MIST-VR) has 12 abstract laparoscopic tasks, each at 3 graduated levels of difficulty… CONTINUE READING
