Simulation Models: Demonstrating Surgical Competence before Undertaking Live Surgery

Presented During:  Teaching and Assessing Surgical Competence
Sat. 16 June 2018: 08:35  - 08:45 
Invited Symposium 
Hall 8.0 
Room: Room 26 


During this talk I will describe how high fidelity model eyes can be used to simulate cataract, glaucoma, strabismus, corneal and VR surgery, so enabling trainees to demonstrate their competence before performing live surgery. There will be advice about how to incorporate this form of simulation into training programs.
