Objective:The purpose of this study was to investigate whether individualized deliberate practice on a virtual reality (VR) simulator results in improved technical performance in the operating room. Background:Training on VR simulators has been shown to improve technical performance in the operating room (OR). Currently described VR curricula consist of trainees practicing the same tasks until expert proficiency is reached. It has yet to be investigated whether the individualized deliberate… 
Development of an evidence-based training program for laparoscopic hysterectomy on a virtual reality simulator
TLDR
The VR program for LH accrued validity evidence and allowed the development of an evidence-based and stepwise training curriculum using a structured scientific methodology.
Effect of Short-term-focused Training on a Phantom Model in Improving Operative Room Performance Among Surgical Residents: A Randomized Trial
TLDR
This study concludes that the training on the Tuebingen trainer with integrated porcine organs results in a statistically significant improvement in the OR performance of surgical residents as compared with the nontrained residents, thereby indicating a transfer of skills from training to OR.
An evidence-based laparoscopic simulation curriculum shortens the clinical learning curve and reduces surgical adverse events
TLDR
Proficiency-based preclinical training has a positive impact on the learning curve of a laparoscopic cholecystectomy and diminishes adverse events.
Surgical simulation: Current practices and future perspectives for technical skills training
TLDR
This narrative review uses Kern’s framework for curriculum development to describe where SBT is now and what lies ahead for SBT within surgery with a focus on technical skills in operative procedures.
Transferability of Simulation-Based Training in Laparoscopic Surgeries: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Simulation provides a safe, effective, and ethical way for residents to acquire surgical skills before entering the operating room, and simulation-trained participants showed superiority in surgical performance in comparison with untrained surgeons.
Does rating with a checklist improve the effect of E-learning for cognitive and practical skills in bariatric surgery? A rater-blinded, randomized-controlled trial
TLDR
Evidence is presented that the use of a BOSATS checklist during E-learning helps trainees to improve their knowledge acquisition with E- learning and the transfer from mental training to the simulated OR environment seems to be partially enhanced by use of the BOSETS checklist.

Deliberate Practice on a Virtual Reality Laparoscopic Simulator Enhances the Quality of Surgical Technical Skills
TLDR
VR training improved dexterity for both groups, and led to transfer of skill onto a porcine LC model, and achieved higher quality, and demonstrated superior transfer onto real tissues.
Development and Validation of a Comprehensive Curriculum to Teach an Advanced Minimally Invasive Procedure: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Participation in a comprehensive ex vivo training curriculum for laparoscopic colorectal surgery results in improved technical knowledge and improved performance in the operating room compared with conventional residency training, and outperformed conventionally trained residents in 7 of 8 tasks on the simulator.
An Evidence-Based Virtual Reality Training Program for Novice Laparoscopic Surgeons
TLDR
A competency-based training curriculum for novice laparoscopic surgeons has been defined to ensure that junior trainees have acquired prerequisite levels of skill prior to entering the operating room, and put them directly into practice.
VR to OR: A Review of the Evidence that Virtual Reality Simulation Improves Operating Room Performance
TLDR
The use of virtual reality (VR) simulation to train surgeons has been supported by a body of experimental data derived from randomized trials of VR simulation training versus no such training, which has generally demonstrated that skills acquired through courses of training in VR transfer to the clinical or animal laboratory setting.
Laparoscopic training on bench models: better and more cost effective than operating room experience?
Surgical Simulation: A Systematic Review
TLDR
While there may be compelling reasons to reduce reliance on patients, cadavers, and animals for surgical training, none of the methods of simulated training has yet been shown to be better than other forms of surgical training.
