Title Medical Robotic and Telesurgical Simulation and Education Research.

Abstract This project is broken into three focus areas: robotic curriculum, telesurgery, and simulation. In each we are exploring various applications and extensions of the existing robotic surgical systems. Under robotic curriculum we are bringing together the leading surgeons and academicians to define the outcomes measures, curriculum, and high stakes testing that should be used to certify surgeons who wish to practice robotic surgery. Under telesurgery we are exploring the ability to perform telesurgery using a robot within a metropolitan area based on the currently available technology. Under simulation we are examining the impact of rehearsing a procedure in a simulator immediately before performing that same procedure on a patient. This area also includes a comparative evaluation of all of the robotic simulators that are available with a recommendation of the best fit for military surgeons.
