Mastering Surgical Skills Through Simulation-Based Learning: Practice Makes One Perfect

Mastering Surgical Skills Through Simulation-Based Learning: Practice Makes One Perfect

Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery 9(1): 27-31

Simulation-based learning in surgery is a learning model where an environment similar to real life surgical situation is created for the trainee to learn various surgical skills. It can be used to train a new operator as well to assess his skills. This methodology helps in repetitive practice of surgical skills on nonliving things so that the operator can be near-perfect when operating on a live patient. Various models are available for learning different dermatosurgery skills.
