  • Surgery Simulation Center

    The Surgery Simulation Center was established in 2003. It is located in the original Medical School building, and a combination lock provides surgical residents with 24-hour access year-round. State-of-the-art laparoscopic and endoscopic simulators are available.

    Residents progress at their own pace through the minimally invasive surgery curriculum, with operative opportunities linked to their simulator skills progression. Simulator practice is supplemented by in vivo laboratory sessions for each post-graduate year group. A large textbook, CD-Rom and video/DVD library of all laparoscopic techniques and procedures is also available in the Surgery Simulation Center, and these resources are constantly updated and expanded.

    Courses

    The Surgery Simulation Center is available to any surgeon (general surgeon, urologist or gynecologist) interested in learning or just improving his/her laparoscopic surgical skills. This is possible through individualized courses tailored to each surgeon's specific needs. These courses may include practice on the simulators as well as animal laboratories. Proctorships may also be arranged.
