Training and skill assessment for image-guided interventions

In the past decade, medical education has experienced a paradigm shift from a time-honored apprenticeship model to a competency-based medical education model (CBME). In the traditional model, trainees practice on real patients under the supervision of senior physicians, advancing to the next phase after a predetermined length of time. With the CBME model, training advancement occurs based on the trainee’s proficiency in the tested skill, allowing for a more structured, standardized, and efficient education process. However, exposure to a variety of clinical encounters is simply not feasible in the traditional clinical setting. Effective implementation of a CBME model therefore requires medical simulation to ensure achievement of desired outcomes. Our lab, in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences, has been at the forefront of developing simulation-based curriculum and has been recognized internationally for our efforts in advancing medical education.
