Team Intellivision[edit | edit source]

Team IntelliVision is developing a Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy Training Module for surgical residents and surgeons to learn to perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Team Intellivision, based in India, is aiming to teach surgical residents and practicing surgeons how to perform this common procedure laparoscopically. This technique, which uses very small incisions, has become the gold standard for the treatment of gallbladder disease in high income countries.

In support of the Global Surgical Training Challenge, I am working with my team of surgeons, engineers, and scientists to develop a self-training and assessment module to teach the Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy procedure.

We are looking for innovative simulation training modules which will enable surgical practitioners and trainees to learn and assess the progress of gaining surgical psychomotor skills without requiring the presence of a teacher. Applicants are required to explain the need for the surgical skill they wish to train and detail the self-assessment framework they plan to develop.

Applicants will outline the procedure (or its key steps) that will be turned into a simulation-based training module and how it will deliver on the objectives of the self-assessment framework.
