This module provides a basic level practice of robotic skills in a non-anatomic setting. The tasks are organized in an incremental fashion, allowing the trainee to gain further skills with each task: basic eye-hand coordination, depth perception, bimanual manipulation, clutching, camera, wrist articulation, 4th arm control, use of energy source, atraumatic handling, cutting and dissection.

The module can be part of a basic or a more advanced complete training curriculum, enabling self-practice and optimizing proctor time. The tasks can be practiced repetitively until reaching the desired proficiency level, and a comprehensive performance report is provided at the end of each task indicating time & economy and task specific metrics.
