Abstract

Simulation-based boot camps are growing in popularity and are effective in onboarding novice residents with new knowledge, skills, and behaviors. These intensive and immersive courses may be used to train residents and allied health professionals in specific procedures, teamwork, and management of rare clinical scenarios. A needs assessment of learners determines the course curriculum. Boot camps are designed to encourage active and hands-on participation with deliberate practice and immediate feedback. As surgical education shifts toward competency-based medical education, there may be an even greater role for simulation-based boot camps as a training and assessment tool.
