CAMES Simulation Masterclass


  • Design a curriculum
  • Develop dedicated custom-built training models
  • Use effective and evidence-based teaching methods for surgical training and simulation-based certification (mastery learning)
  • Plan and conduct research studies regarding surgical simulation

Steps in Curriculum Design:

Designing a simulation-based curriculum should follow a structured approach to ensure success.  Kern et. al. outlined a six-step approach to curriculum development including:

  1. Problem Identification and General Needs Assessment
  2. Targeted Needs Assessment
  3. Formulation of Goals and Objectives
  4. Selection of Educational Strategies
  5. Methods for Implementation
  6. Evaluation and Feedback

The CAMES Simulation Masterclass consists of intensive lectures, group discussions, workshops, and hands-on train-the-trainer courses with phantoms, virtual-reality simulators, and live animals. Number of participants is limited to
allow for an intensive format.
