SIMULATE

Simulation is an adjunct to real environment training. Simulation avoids the use of patients for skills practice and ensures that trainees have had some practice before treating humans. Surgical simulation may or may not involve the use of computers. Inanimate trainers and simulators have been shown to facilitate the skill acquisition of urologists. Surgical training consists of developing cognitive, communication and technical skills. Training is through the use of models, cadavers and

Developing a simulation programme in urology

Developing a simulation programme in urology

Inanimate trainers and simulators have been shown to facilitate the skill acquisition of urologists. However, there are significant challenges to integrating standalone simulation programmes into mainstream urology curricula. This study provides a framework to overcome these challenges and discusses the advantages of centralised urology simulation centres and their potential to serve as key adjuncts in the certification and validation process of urologists. Fixed performance-based outcomes of inanimate trainers and simulators
