The Neurosurgical Simulation Workshop will be taking place the XXIV Mexican Congress of Neurological Surgery in Cancun, Mexico on Sunday, August 6th 2017.
The workshop is given by NeuroSim director Dr. Rolando Del Maestro as well as researchers and neurosurgeons Dr. Ghusn Alsidieri and Dr. Alexander Winkler-Schwartz. The NeuroVR platform will be used.
The goals of the workshop are:
- 1. Define key issues related to surgical error, surgical competency and surgical expertise
- 2. Outline how virtual reality simulation can be used in surgical assessment and training
by demonstrating the scenarios, metrics, validation, and proficiency-based benchmarks of the NeuroVR Simulation Platform
- 3. Provide hands-on experience with the NeuroVR Simulation Platform
