Development of an Affordable System for Personalized Video-Documented Surgical Skill Analysis for Surgical Residency Training. Annals of plastic surgery Berger, A. J., Gaster, R. S., Lee, G. K. 2013


Surgical competency requires the development of decision-making and technical skills. Despite lectures, literature, and written and oral examinations, both skill sets are difficult to systematically teach and analyze. With the advent of head-mounted video cameras, we seek to incorporate a surgical video database into our surgical training curriculum. We hope to not only change the way and rate at which surgical trainees develop their surgical skills but to also introduce a novel tool for surgical skill assessment.
