Surgical Skills Simulation Laboratory

The Surgical Skills Laboratory is a state-of-the-art facility where a variety of medical skills and procedures such as laparoscopy, arthroscopy, endoscopy and microsurgery are practiced by surgical residents in the 18 accredidated surgical residency programs. The space includes a total of 20 simulated operating room stations fully equipped with scrub sinks, surgical beds and tables, overhead OR lighting, dual LED monitors and ceiling supply units. Four of the stations are specially outfitted with in-light cameras that allow real-time imaging to be displayed throughout the lab and classrooms.

An integrated system of pan-tilt-zoom cameras offers the ability to video record laboratory sessions.  Video recording provides instructors and students the opportunity to review and discuss procedures as well as monitor the progress of trainees from a distance. The ability to record these sessions will also allow faculty to develop research programs designed to evaluate new techniques, new equipment and new teaching methods. Furthermore, trainees will be able to develop their own 'portfolio' of work; performance videos of simulated surgical procedures.

The Surgical Skills Laboratory is designed to be multifunctional and offers a variety of configurations to accommodate any group size. The area can be used as one large space or divided into two or four smaller spaces allowing for multiple education sessions to occur at once. Additionally, the ATSSL is focused on user safety and is equipped with a fully functional reprocessing area to clean and sterilize instruments onsite.
