Revolutionizing Residency Training: Introducing the MAAS Program by AANA

In the realm of orthopedic education, the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) has once again set a precedent with the launch of its Mobile Advanced Arthroscopy Simulator (MAAS) program in 2023. This innovative initiative has already made waves across various residency programs, showcasing its potential to redefine how surgical skills are acquired and honed.

Tübingen University Hospital on VirtaMed Gynecological Laparoscopy Simulation: Enabling Systematic Structured Education

We asked experts from the Women's Health Clinic at Tübingen University Hospital in Germany, one of the leading centers of excellence collaborating with VirtaMed on LaparoS™ development, to share their impressions on the value that the mixed reality simulator brings to training and education of gynecology residents.

Ten hours of simulator training in arthroscopy are insufficient to reach the target level based on the Diagnostic Arthroscopic Skill Score

Our data have demonstrated that arthroscopic skills can be taught effectively on a simulator, but a 10-h course is not sufficient to reach the target level set by experienced arthroscopists. However, learning progress can be monitored more objectively during simulator training than in the operating room, and simulation may partially replace the current practice of arthroscopic training.

Partnership

I firmly believe that simulation training should be considered an essential component, rather than a mere option, in surgical education and robotic surgery training. VirtaMed's Dexter simulator is remarkably close to the actual Dexter robot, making it an invaluable tool for honing the skills necessary to operate the robot proficiently before entering the operating room.

Prof. Dieter Hahnloser

Chief Surgeon, and Head of Colorectal Surgery at the University Hospital Lausanne, Switzerland

We are pleased to partner with VirtaMed, whose 15 years of experience in providing training solutions for minimally invasive transvaginal surgeries will be invaluable as we work to integrate proficiency-based simulation across the skills development pathway for surgeons using our Hominis System.

VirtaMed has shown us that they are not just our vendor, but a strategic partner in a vision to improve patient outcomes together with us. Our experience with VirtaMed has far exceeded expectations, and we strongly recommend them for any new  company moving into medical simulation or taking their simulation to the next level.

Michael Conditt, PhD

Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing and Clinical Development at Momentis Surgical

We were looking for a portable solution that demonstrates the experience and advantages of Symani while providing a realistic microsurgery training environment. In VirtaMed, we’ve found a partner who shares our mission to improve patient outcomes and the quality of care through comprehensive training methods, allowing us to enrich the training experiences of our surgeons and drive adoption of robotic microsurgery.

Mark Toland

CEO of MMI

The aim of simulation is to standardize best practices to ultimately improve clinical outcomes using skill and procedural-based metrics while reducing the learning curve to becoming proficient with the system. Virtual reality-based simulation offers physicians the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills to become technically competent prior to use in a real-world clinical setting.

Chris Klecher

Senior Vice President, Upstream Marketing

With Virtamed’s unique expertise in simulation training solutions and Aspivix’ s commitment to advancing women’s healthcare through innovation designed for clinicians with women’s experience in mind, we focused on supporting healthcare professionals with new medical education to improve IUDs placement with our Carevix. Our early adopters have been impressed by the quality, ease-of-use, and innovation of the 3D online simulator on IUD.
Together with our shared goal to improve patient care, our collaboration with VirtaMed represents an incredible opportunity to advance innovation in FemTech and revolutionize the medical education for current and future healthcare professionals in gynecology.

Mathieu Horras

CEO and co-founder of ASPIVIX

Improving patient care is at the core of what we do; education and proper training on Paragard® plays a crucial role. The agility and flexibility of the VirtaMed developer team is outstanding!  We couldn’t be happier with the quality of the simulator training program and the tools they created for us. Our simulators are a customized interactive solution that delivers a user-friendly, compliant experience for healthcare professionals.
