A Validated Curriculum for Residents in Gynecology

The LapSim Certification Program™ for Gynecology is currently in use at local, regional, and national levels around the world to establish a minimum proficiency level, in terms of hand-eye coordination, depth perception, spatial awareness, and instrumentation before surgeons treat their first patients. Only the Surgical Science simulator comes complete with a validated curriculum for gynecology surgery.

The British Medical Journal published a study in which Dr. Larsen concluded: Residents who train on Surgical Science’s simulator and follow a pre-defined curriculum demonstrate a proficiency level equivalent to surgeons who have performed 20 – 50 patient procedures.

Training in proficiency based skills should be incorporated in a comprehensive surgical training and assessment curriculum for all residents.
