Now widely recognized as one of the most effective methods for training future surgeons, simulation has become an integral part of the multidimensional landscape that makes up a surgical education curriculum. This book provides an overview of the current status of simulation-based training in various surgical disciplines and explains the science of surgical education, from developing a simulation programme to properly assess surgeons-in-training, to transferring the skills acquired through simulation into real-life settings. As such, the book can be used as a guide for understanding the basics of surgical education.

‘This is truly a most comprehensive and accessible publication on simulation in urology. While the title of the book is ‘Surgical Simulation’ and consequently all aspects of surgical simulation are expertly discussed, care is taken to also point to the role of simulation techniques as a key tool in the development of non-technical proficiencies such as communication- and cognitive skills. [...] I would highly recommend this book as a most interesting publication for all colleagues working in urological care. I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.’ —Per-Anders Abrahamsson, ‘BJUI International’
