Simulation in Orthopedic Surgery
Simulation in orthopedic surgery has long focused on technical skill development. As arthroscopy has become increasingly important for clinical care, it has also emerged as a major target of surgical simulation. Since the 2013 American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery mandate that intern education include surgical simulation, the emphasis in orthopedics has increased dramatically. Important work has also begun on nontechnical aspects of orthopedic surgical care such as communication skills.
