Abstract

Computers will allow the creation of novel training environments in ways that can only be imagined at the present time. The design of computer-based simulators for training of surgical procedures is a highly complex and ever-more sophisticated process. A thorough understanding of human learning principles as well as the capabilities and limitations of simulation training is required. Only development teams with expertise in medicine and surgery, computer science, hardware engineering, and simulation training will be able to create the useful surgical simulators of tomorrow.
