This book is ideal for teams developing simulation labs but is also a great resource for existing labs. An excellent review of current technology and its application to curricula in the skills lab. There is also a comprehensive section on use of simulators in specialty training applications such as colorectal, pediatrics, trauma, and more.

The Textbook of Simulation: Skills and Team Training book was created out of a need gap identified by the Association for Surgical Education Committee on Simulation, for a resource that provided information on the types of simulation technology available, the role of simulators in surgical education, and establishing skills training centers. The book also provides background on the ACS / APDS Surgical Skills Curriculum for Residents.
