Acquiring surgical skills is one of the major objectives of surgical training. Trainees face increasing challenges to meet the continuously evolving surgical techniques and approaches during the limited time course of their surgical training. The limited availability of training tools for teaching advanced surgical skills is an additional barrier. Educators have increasingly used simulation tools for surgical skills training around the globe. However, current simulation training modules and curricula focus mainly on basic surgical skills. Hence, the development of advanced virtual simulation modules offers a precious laparoscopic training opportunity. This article provides an educational technology-based review and proposal (with selected examples) of simulation training modules on advanced surgical skills that can be used for advanced surgical training approaches.
