HYST MENTOR
CURRICULUM

The simulator curriculum plays an important role in the success of skill centers and in resident learning. A number of publications have demonstrated the importance of structured VR training curriculum and suggest that training within a proficiency-based virtual reality curriculum may reduce errors during real surgical procedures.

Simbionix is very proud to work in collaboration with key leaders in medical education and surgery to provide our worldwide customers with well thought out curricula. Within these, the simulator serves as a tool for delivering a learning experience. The curricula are intended to enhance learner motivation for an enjoyable, effective and efficient way of acquiring new skills using simulators.

The Hyst Mentor is a virtual reality simulator for newly qualified surgeons. It offers training in diagnostic and therapeutic hysteroscopy. This program has been integrated into a specially developed curriculum at Zurich University Hospital. Following the latest principles in education and hands-on training, surgeons obtain all-embracing practical skills (“best practice“) to operate successfully in gynecology.
