BACKGROUND The traditional process of surgical education is being increasingly challenged by economic constraints and concerns about patient safety. Sophisticated computer-based devices have become available to simulate the surgical experience in a protected environment. As with any new educational tool, these devices have generated controversy about the validity of the training experience. HYPOTHESIS Performance on a virtual reality simulator correlates with actual surgical experience… CONTINUE READING
