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.
