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 on tips and tricks for performing the enterectomy.


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.
