The article focuses on the uses of simulation technology in surgical education and its role in teaching and assessing technical and non-technical skills. It highlights that simulation-based training in surgery improves patient safety and learning efficiency because of the acquisition of technical skills which is vital for surgical trainees. However, it emphasizes that there is a substantial role that non-technical factors such as leadership and teamwork play in operative success.
