Surgical simulation and eLearning: essentials in a post-COVID world

20th May 2020


In times of pressure, we must optimise the use of adjuncts to traditional surgical training. In this webinar a panel from RCSEd, the Scottish Surgical Simulation Collaborative and Edinburgh Surgery Online will explore recent progress in Surgical Simulation and in eLearning, how we could better integrate them into training, and what obstacles we might still face compared with other high risk industries. It will appeal to surgical trainees, trainers and programme directors.

This event is part of a short series of webinars focused on Surgical Simulation. You can find further information and register for these events here
