Research Project Description
To develop and validate ex vivo, perfused, biological simulation models to be employed for assessment and training of students dependent on their level of surgical expertise. Basic surgical techniques can be used for the training of medical students and residents in postgraduate year one (PGY1). Intermediate surgical exercises are used for training of PGY2 and PGY3 residents. The focus of these systems will be the training of advanced microsurgical skills to PGY4-6 residents.
The creation of these hybrid biological models which compliment concurrent validity carried out by virtual reality simulator systems and operative surgery will be critical to the development of modern surgical simulation education.
