SFA and CFCOT Collaboration
Since 1 November 2017, every surgical resident in France is supposed to get training on a simulator. To determine the best approach for arthroscopy, the French College of Orthopedic Surgery (CFCOT) is conducting a nationwide study in arthroscopic training methods in collaboration with the Francophone Society of Arthroscopy (SFA) and VirtaMed. The second data set will be collected during a tour to several University Hospitals, concluding at the Western Orthopedic Society (SOO) Congress in Rennes on 28–30 June, 2018.
The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) is a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the advancement of the science and practice of reproductive medicine. The Society accomplishes its mission through the pursuit of excellence in education and research and through advocacy on behalf of patients, physicians, and affiliated health care providers. The Society is committed to facilitating and sponsoring educational activities for the lay public and continuing medical education activities for professionals who are engaged in the practice of and research in reproductive medicine. The ASRM Embryo Transfer Simulator (ETSim) provides physicians the opportunity to practice simulated transfers with varying degrees of difficulty in a safe, risk-free environment and with unlimited repetitions. In conjunction with the Guide to Learning Embryo Transfer, the ETSim is a tool that significantly augments current physician training using a structured simulation-based method to learn basic embryo transfer techniques and characteristics of an ideal transfer.
This simulator has entered the market only recently, so there are no stories on centers of excellence available right now.
At the moment, there are no upcoming conferences for this simulator. If you would like to get your own hands-on demo, please contact us for a personal presentation.
