Low-fidelity bench models for basic surgical skills training during undergraduate medical education

Low-fidelity bench models for basic surgical skills training during undergraduate medical education

Revista do Colegio Brasileiro de Cirurgioes 41(2): 137-145

It is remarkable the reduction in the number of medical students choosing general surgery as a career. In this context, new possibilities in the field of surgical education should be developed to combat this lack of interest. In this study, a program of surgical training based on learning with models of low-fidelity bench is designed as a complementary alternative to the various methodologies in the teaching of basic surgical skills during medical education, and to develop personal interests in career choice.
