Abstract

Simulation-based training has become a critical component for surgical endoscopy training. The different classes of platforms available include mechanical or physical, virtual reality, composite, and live animal models. Deciding which platform is appropriate is heavily dependent on the desired learning objectives and individual tasks or skills being practiced. This chapter will outline the various platforms available for basic and advanced endoscopy simulation, including their validity evidence as an assessment tool and demonstrated efficacy as a training modality. The simulation platforms will be compared with regard to their advantages and disadvantages when incorporating them into a training program, as well as their features, capabilities, targeted skills, and feedback potential. Additionally, endoscopy-specific curriculum development, feedback methodologies, and assessment will be discussed to promote best practices when employing surgical endoscopy into a trainee’s simulation experience. Simulation continues to advance, and the following can be used as a framework to aid in the development of an effective simulation training program for surgical endoscopy.
