Surgical Skills

The SIU Surgical Skills Laboratory, in partnership with Memorial Medical Center, allows residents and physicians to stay on the leading-edge of practice and technology by honing their skills in a simulated environment. Using computer simulators and virtual reality technology as well as specially designed procedure modules, surgical residents learn a wide array of skills.

Residents using the lab come from general surgery, vascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, otolaryngology, plastic surgery, urology, emergency medicine, OB/GYN, internal medicine, family medicine, neurosurgery, primary care and third- and fourth-year medical students.
