Abstract: Rapid developments in techniques and new skills requirements have increased the need for surgical training outside the operating room (OR). Simulator training is often seen as a vital part of the surgical resident’s education. This paper presents a simulator training program aimed at providing surgical skills training for residents in a hospital. The theoretical background on the subject is considered and initial findings discussed. The results highlight the need to organize the training systematically. Simulator training prior to entering the OR should be mandatory for all residents, even though the study showed the motivation for voluntary participation to be high. The role of the specialist surgeon emerged as an essential element in the simulator training, both as an evaluator and as an instructor.
