Endovascular simulation improves vascular surgery residents' performance

The use of an intensive simulation-based endovascular curriculum during a resident's vascular surgery rotation improves the technical skills of surgical residents, a new study has demonstrated. The prospective, randomized trial conducted in a U.S. institution has also shown that endovascular simulation training translates into improved performance in the operating room.

The new research on the importance of surgical simulation as a training tool for residents training in endovascular surgery was presented by principal investigator and lead author Jason T. Lee, MD, associate professor of surgery and program director of the vascular residency and fellowship programs at Stanford University School of Medicine, at the Vascular Annual Meeting of the Society for Vascular Surgery in National Harbor, USA, in June.
