ABSTRACT
Surgical skills and simulation centers have been developed in recent years to meet the educational needs of practicing surgeons, residents, and students. The rapid pace of innovation in surgical procedures and technology, as well as the overarching desire to enhance patient safety, have driven the development of simulation technology and new paradigms for surgical education. McGill University has implemented an innovative approach to surgical education in the field of minimally invasive surgery. The goal is to measure surgical performance in the operating room using practical, reliable, and valid metrics, which allow the educational needs of the learner to be established and enable feedback and performance to be tracked over time. The GOALS system and the MISTELS program have been developed to measure operative performance and minimally invasive surgical technical skills in the inanimate skills lab, respectively. The MISTELS laparoscopic simulation-training program has been incorporated as the manual skills education and evaluation component of the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery program distributed by the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) and the American College of Surgeons.
