medical education. This study examines the use of a haptic-enabled, virtual reality simulator designed to allow training in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques. The paper shows how medical practices and practitioners are constructed during a simulation. By using the theoretical tools that situated learning and communities of practice provide, combined with the concept of reconstituting, I broaden the discussion of medical simulators from a concern with discrete skills and individual… Expand


Situating Simulators: The Integration of Simulations in Medical Practice
Simulators indicate that in the simulations the students are involved in learning to be doctors rather than just learning medical skills, which emphasises the importance of the instructing doctor's role in a simulation. Expand
Out of My Viewfinder, Yet in the Picture
This research examines the integration of medical simulators into medical education. Training on a haptic-enabled surgery simulator has been observed with an eye to the context of the medicalExpand
The Anatomy of a Surgical Simulation
It is argued that surgical learning occurs at the interface of bodies and instruments, through simultaneous sculpting of the surgical site and training of the surgeon’s body, a process I call mutual articulation. Expand
Computers and virtual reality for surgical education in the 21st century.
There has been early progress that should encourage surgeons to incorporate computer simulation into the surgical curriculum, and computer-based training in technical skills has the potential to solve many of the educational, economic, ethical, and patient safety issues related to learning to perform operations. Expand
The imperative for medical simulation
The paper presents the concepts, challenges, and visions of the authors, both of whom have been actively developing simulation for the specialty of interventional radiology, and includes expectations for the future of simulation in other procedural specialties. Expand
Low‐ to high‐fidelity simulation – a continuum of medical education?
Simulation is an educational technique that allows interactive, and at times immersive, activity by recreating all or part of a clinical experience without exposing patients to the associated risks. Expand
Virtual reality: teaching tool of the twenty‐first century?

A wide range of simulations, representing diverse content areas and utilizing a variety of implementation strategies, are either under development or in their early implementation stages, promising to make broad-based training experiences available for students at all levels, without the risks and ethical concerns typically associated with using animal and human subjects.

Virtual reality in surgery
This review describes the application of virtual reality and robotics to surgical training and planning and the execution of procedures in theatre and discusses the near term future of this new technology. Expand
Skill transfer from virtual reality to a real laparoscopic task
The training of novices using the Minimal Invasive Surgical Trainer in Virtual Reality yields quantifiable changes in skill that are transferable to a simple real task and are similar to the results achieved with conventional training. Expand
Designing a computer‐based simulator for interventional cardiology training
The first report of a PC‐based simulator that incorporates synthetic fluoroscopy, real‐time three‐dimensional interactive anatomic display, and selective right‐ and left‐sided coronary catheterization and angiography using actual catheters is presented. Expand
