Simulation Training for Surgical Trainees
The College of Surgeons of Hong Kong embraces a mission to uphold a high level of surgical standard for the best patient safety. To maximize learning opportunities for our young surgeons while minimizing the risks to patients, we have recognized the great potentials of incorporating simulation concepts and technologies in surgical training. With this imminent need ahead, the Department of Development has set up a Task Force on Simulation in Surgical Training in 2010 to develop and devise simulation-based programme to our trainees.
Development over the past years
The Task Force has devised the following programmes during the past few years:
Workshop on Acute Abdomen
The workshop covers 3 areas, namely 1. Right Lower Quadrant Pain; 2. Central Abdominal Pain; and 3. Right Upper Quadrant Pain. The first workshop was held in July 2013 and have been held regularly.
Anatomy Workshop in Acute Abdomen
The Anatomy Workshop in Acute Abdomen was conducted in collaboration with the Department of Anatomy of the University of Hong Kong. The target audience were Basic Surgical Trainees. The first workshop was held in November 2012 and have been held regularly.
Communication Module and Workshop
The module of “Communication” is in collaboration with The Hong Kong College of Family Physicians and is under developing currently.
The Department of Development will continue to explore and implement ways to incorporate simulation technology into surgical training and education.
