Content

This seminar aims at students who would like to get insights into medical simulation for medical education purposes. Based on the academic achievements within the seminar future bachelor/master topics can be derived.

We will look at the state of the art in the medical simulation domain. In particular we will look at methods and tools for development and validation of simulation environments. Furthermore we will address surgical skill assessment and training approaches.

Visit of the simulation centers at Klinikum Innenstadt (LMU) and Klinikum rechts der Isar (TUM) are planned.

The seminar will cover the following selected topics:

  • Medical Simulation Environments (Validation, assessment and training methods)
  • Assessment methods and tools for technical and non-technical surgical skills
  • Surgical skills: e.g. visuo-spatial reasoning
  • Simulator development

The seminar will begin with an emphasis on the basic prose style for writing an excellent literature review and dissemination of experimental results. Students will then be separated into small groups and work towards the submission of a complete literature review on one of the selected research topics below.

Output

  • Literature review or essay * (Report format: single space; 1 column; word or latex; minimum font 11)

Grades

  • Final grades will be determined on the quality of the literature review submission.
  • Literature review: 10 pages
  • Oral presentation: 15 minutes
  • Mandatory attendance since the course is held every 2 weeks.

Literature and Helpful Links

A lot of scientific publications can be found online.

The following list may help you to find some further information on your particular topic:

Some publishers:

Libraries (online and offline):

Some further hints for working with references:

  • JabRef is a Java program for comfortable working with Bibtex literature databases. Handy feature: if you know the PubMed ID for an article, JabRef can import data from there (via "Web Search/Medline").
  • Mendeley is a cross-platform program for organising your references.

If you find useful resources that are not already listed here, please tell us, so we can add them for others. Thanks.
