UTMB’s Dr. Kilic on the Robotic Simulator Training Study
UTMB has one of the nation’s leading robotic surgery departments.
We are on the cutting edge of developing robotic surgical and training programs.
While devising and implementing these programs, a group of surgeons, led by Dr. Kilic, wanted to know the developmental video gaming may have on future surgeons.
So, they created a study that compared the performance of high school and college students with residents from the robotic surgery program on UTMB’s robotic training simulator.
