Resident performance in knee arthroscopy may improve with cadaveric skills labs, simulators
July 2, 2015

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Residents who trained with cadaveric skills labs and simulators experienced improved performance in knee arthroscopy compared with residents who did not, according to results presented at the American Orthopaedic Association Annual Meeting.

“Residents improve arthroscopic performance after training on both cadaveric specimens and high-fidelity virtual-reality simulators,” Christopher L. Camp, MD, of the Mayo Clinic Orthopedic Sports Medicine Center, told Healio.com/Orthopedics. “Although the rate of improvement is greater with cadaveric training, simulator training may be more cost-effective if the simulator is used enough.”
