Procedure Simulation Training Curriculum

The old mantra of see-one, do-one, teach-one is out! A better approach to learning is practicing procedures in a simulated environment with direct observation and feedback. Current evidence also suggests that number of completed procedures alone is not a surrogate for competent performance.

So, starting with paracentesis, we have developed online training modules, a novel competency assessment tool and simulation sessions to learn and practice the procedure over time to prevent skill decay. Each session is done one-on-one with a resident and faculty member to capitalize on the use of deliberate practice and guided feedback.
