Achieving expert performance through simulation-based education and application of mastery learning principles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Medical education has undergone significant change as we have moved from a purely apprenticeship model to one of competence. Simulation-based education can and does play a significant role in the development of an expert surgeon. Proven concepts of simulation-based education include distributed deliberate practice, content that challenges the learner, formative and summative feedback. The application of mastery learning principles is critical to achieve the best retention and outcomes related to an educational program. In this manuscript, we explore the methodology and justification for Mastery Learning as the gold standard of surgical education.
