– Yale University School of Medicine
We’ve been chatting with Dr. Hulda Einarsdottir, the Director of Surgical Simulation at Yale University School of Medicine, on how and why she made simulation training an integral part of her surgical curriculum.
Over a series of 4 articles Hulda talks about the the benefits of VR simulation training and how to successfully integrate simulation training into your curruculum.
VR simulator-trained students perform real surgery with more confidence, less operative time, and increased accuracy.

Traditional box training prepares students for examinations but can it fully prepare them for the real situations they’ll face in surgery? Some medical schools, including Yale, believe students are better prepared for the operating room when VR simulation training supplements box training. We...
Virtual reality (VR) simulation training is revolutionizing surgical education. When surgery professor Dr. Hulda Einarsdottir stepped into her position as Director of Surgical Simulation at Yale University School of Medicine in 2014, she had ambitious goals. With Dr. Einarsdottir’s stepped...
Laparoscopic simulators are a great tool to teach and assess surgical skills. They can provide a validated turnkey curriculum, reducing administrative and management demands, and give trainees the opportunity to improve their surgical skills. In the second part of our Yale simulation series we...
The evolution of simulation-based surgical education is changing the way we prepare students for surgery. Traditionally, students used box trainers to learn basic surgical skills. But universities like Yale have responded to evolving simulation technology by adding virtual reality (VR) simulation...
