Background: Historically, the operating room has been the training setting for both surgeons and students. Nowadays, an alternative is represented by surgical simulators. In the same way a not-very-well-built mirror cannot reflect trustworthy images (distortion), a not well-built, calibrated or programmed simulator will be unable to reflect the training level of the operator. Our aim is to indirectly evaluate the Surgical SIM® simulator.
Methods: Twelve surgical residents were classified according to novices, intermediates and experts, and 15 tasks were applied with three dimensions of evaluation in each using the Surgical SIM® simulator. Pearson’s correlation test was used to establish validity.
Results. In general, from the three dimensions evaluated, results showed a statistically significant difference for time (p = 0.001), trajectory (p = 0.01) and errors (p = 0.001).
Conclusions: Effectiveness of Surgical SIM® was indirectly demonstrated.
