Psychomotor testing predicts rate of skill acquisition for proficiency-based laparoscopic skills training.


BACKGROUND Laparoscopic simulator training translates into improved operative performance. Proficiency-based curricula maximize efficiency by tailoring training to meet the needs of each individual; however, because rates of skill acquisition vary widely, such curricula may be difficult to implement. We hypothesized that psychomotor testing would predict… (More)
