Proficiency-based skills assessment

Objective skills assessment is critical in robotic surgery training. To measure a trainee’s level of proficiency, the 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.

dV-Trainer curricula can be uploaded and shared on the MScore Portal.
