Objective skills assessment is critical in robotic surgery training. To measure a trainee’s level of proficiency, dV-Trainer™ uses the comprehensive metrics and experienced surgeon data of Mimic’s MScore™. It allows administrators to track performance and learning progress over time, personalize user accounts, create and share customized simulation curricula, manage courses, and export data for in-depth analysis.
Featuring data collected from more than 100 experienced surgeons with over 75 robotic cases completed, MScore™ assessment is based on expert mean and standard deviation data (similar to the FLS™ protocol*) to facilitate credentialing and privileging. Users can choose between the new Proficiency Based System and the legacy Classic System; change proficiency baselines; and customize the scoring protocol to fit the needs of their institution.
With the latest version of MScore™, educators can build their own training protocols from more than 40 exercises and assign different curricula to each user. dV-Trainer curricula can be uploaded to MShare, an online portal that is designed to promote collaboration and communication between dV-Trainer institutions and surgeons.
