Course Overview

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.


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)

Basic 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
