Abstract

The dramatic increase in the number of robotic surgeries performed has prompted a need for more rigorous robotics training during or after residency, yet training in robotic surgery requires the instructing surgeon to partially relinquish control of the procedure, which makes this training difficult. The MIMIC® virtual reality trainer, MdVT (Mimic Technologies Inc., Seattle, WA), provides a means for trainees to acquire skills prior to entering the operating room. In this chapter, the features of the MdVT as well as the available training exercises are reviewed. Preliminary face, content, and construct validity of the trainer has been established using basic exercises and will be discussed. Finally, the future development of this robotic trainer in terms of further establishing validity and creating new training exercises will be summarized.
