Date:3/13/2013

CLEVELAND, March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Simbionix USA Corporation, the world's leading provider of medical simulators and education solutions, is pleased to announce an agreement with Duke University to license surgical videos and other instructional materials. These resources were developed by Duke physicians and they cover the advanced skills and procedures addressed in Phase 2 of the ACS/APDS Surgical Skills Curriculum for Residents.

Simbionix will make these materials available at no cost to the users of its MentorLearn system as part of the implementation of the ACS/APDS Surgical Skills Curriculum for Residents. MentorLearn is a web-based simulator curricula management system that provides the optimal solution for managing training and education needs for the Simbionix line of simulators.

The main strength of MentorLearn is the incorporation of didactic materials with skills training. The surgical videos and materials from Duke and other leading institutions are coupled with the complete procedures in the Simbionix simulators. This is a powerful combination for learners who can see an actual surgery, followed by conducting the same procedure in a simulated environment.

"The Simbionix collaboration with Duke University's Department of Surgery will give surgeons-in-training around-the-world exposure to the techniques and case management practices from experienced surgeons to whom they wouldn't routinely have had access," said Paul Jensen , Simbionix General Manager, Education Division.

"By providing a link between simulated learning and real-world cases, we hope to enhance the value of our training curriculum to our residents," said Philip Clark , Education Director at Duke University, Department of Surgery.

"The real case footage we are creating with Duke will improve resident's cognitive understanding of surgical procedures," said Jensen. "Coupling the insight of Duke's surgeons with Simbionix' hands-on simulators will improve training efficiency and allow trainees to reach proficiency sooner."
