  • To develop standardized curricula available to all residency programs.
  • To develop standardized teaching and evaluation methods practiced and validated by Consortium members, to ensure the efficacy of simulations education.
  • To  provide validation of  simulations-based education (as a useful teaching strategy) for developing and improving surgical skills, clinical skills, and behavioral skills with a focus on patient safety and the performance of high-quality surgical procedures.
