Ophthalmology Surgery & Clinical Learning Center

 Support the New Expansion

Surgical Simulator 2Ophthalmology learners use our current 3D virtual reality surgical simulator with surgical instrument trays to become familiar with the principles of surgical procedures and prepare for the realities of the operating room. Expanding our technology gives our learners a head-start, creating positive downstream implications. Our learners can perfect their skills in a risk-free environment to provide exemplary patient care upon graduation.

“The Surgery and Clinical Learning Center is a crucial piece of our recruitment efforts to attract the best and brightest trainees, fellows, and faculty from across the country. It will also allow all of our providers to remain on the cutting edge of new surgical and diagnostic technologies and better adapt to new techniques. Finally it will allow us to spread our educational mission to medical students and providers in other fields who need to examine the eyes and visual system of their patients.” says Andrew Hendershot, MD, Director of Residency Program

Benefits of expanding to a full Surgery & Clinical Learning Center include:

  • Adding curriculum designed for adult education across all learners, including medical students, residents and fellows.
  • Evidence-based assessment of skills with emerging Surgical Curriculum for Ophthalmology Residents (SCOR) initiative.
  • Holistic immersive surgery training models that blend physical wet lab and virtual simulation.
  • Advanced user-friendly technology that stimulates innovation between learners and faculty.

Equipment expansion in four education modules

Sugerical Simulator Close Up

Module 1: Updated Surgical Simulator

Offers immersive simulation training of surgical steps for either cataract or posterior segment surgery. This includes life-like instruments and realistic simulation of intraocular structures and the behavior of tissue in real-time.

Wet Lab Stations

Module 2: Wet Lab Station

Offers immersive simulation training of surgical steps for either cataract or posterior segment surgery. This includes life-like instruments and realistic simulation of intraocular structures and the behavior of tissue in real-time.

Slit Lamp Eye Simulator

Module 3: Slit Lamp Simulator

Has all functions of a real slit lamp examination. The highly realistic simulation of intraocular structures in real-time allows learners to practice both the complex handling of the slit lamp and recognition of relevant clinical conditions and diseases.

Indirect Eye Simulator

Module 4: Indirect Ophthalmoscope Simulator

Indirect ophthalmoscopy requires fine motor skills and the ability to interpret an inverted retina image. With a patient model head, two lenses, and a head-mounted display, the simulator mimics all features and challenges of diagnosing with a real indirect ophthalmoscope.
