Abstract:

The use of medical skills simulators for the training and assessment of clinicians is gaining support in the medical teaching facilities around the world. We propose the use and assessment of a medical simulator for the teaching of a set of urological procedures. Clinicians will be enrolled at multiple centers and complete a course of study which may involved the use of a medical simulator training system. At the end of the training the clinicians competency will be assessed and the impact of the use of a medical simulator will be evaluated across all the centers participating.
