In the world of surgical technology education, simulation has become a popular tool for preparing students for the operating room environment. However, with the onset of COVID-19, simulation has become even more important as traditional hands-on training has been limited. That's where PeriopSim comes in.
Boston Children's Hospital's Cardiovascular Operating Room (CVOR) wanted to expand its capacity to train new surgical scrub personnel through simulation. After reviewing the adult modules in PeriopSim, they saw the value of the approach—scrub trainees could memorize instruments and learn procedures without burdening instructors, OR space, or equipment.
