Building the Appendectomy Simulation[edit | edit source]
Learners will first construct the simulation of acute appendicitis out of local materials for performance of the task.
How this looks like on the platform[edit | edit source]
Paradigm Video[edit | edit source]
Learners will view the simulated surgery performed by an expert surgeon in the box trainer. This curated and annotated video demonstrates the paradigm.
Tips and Tricks Video[edit | edit source]
Learners will also watch a video highlighting tips and tricks to performing a laparoscopic appendectomy.
Learners will have our rubric (also known as "Verification of Proficiency") available to them. The Verification of Proficiency serves as a checklist of important elements for competent performance of the procedure as well as the checklist that will be used in the assessment process. You will learn about this in a future appropedia page.
Learners can watch the videos and practice as much as they desire.
