What is the surgeon’s flight simulator? (Barbara Bass)
Science Kit for Barbara Bass
Hello TEDMED fans,
Welcome to the Science Kit for Barbara Bass’ talk at TEDMED 2012, entitled “What is the Surgeon’s Flight Simulator?”
To see the research our team pursues in the field of lifelong surgeon training and retooling, we’ve assembled a website (http://mitietexas/tedmed.org) with links to our collaborative team’s work in MITIE (Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation and Education), our state of the art education, training and research facility at the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas.
On this site you can take a virtual tour of our facility, get access to our research into the development of wearable telementoring technologies, and link to our recent publication in Nature: Scientific Reports about thermal facial mapping and other biosensors in human performance (done in collaboration with the Computational Physiology Laboratory at the University of Houston at http://cpl.uh.edu).
You can also learn more about our international collaborative in the new discipline of computational surgery which uses computer science and engineering computational methods to enhance surgical procedures and surgical training (http://www.computationalsurgery.org) or review a seminal publication on surgical privileging and the need for a new educational infrastructure for practicing surgeons (J Am Col Surg. 2009 Sep;209(3):396-404 athttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19717047).
Finally, review exciting details about the American College of Surgeons Accredited Education Institutes at http://www.facs.org/education/accreditationprogram/index.html .
Would love to hear your thoughts.
