Surgical Simulations

CPEP’s suite of surgical simulations are designed to evaluate the clinician’s motor and technical skills as well as their knowledge and judgment.

  • Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery (FLS): measures cognitive knowledge, case/problem management skills and manual dexterity
  • Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES): tests basic endoscopic skills required in the practice of flexible endoscopy and includes cognitive and technical skills
    • Both the FLS and the FES were developed by SAGES – the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons
  • General Surgery/Open Surgery/Trauma: realistic scenarios which can be adapted for various open surgical case presentations and critical situations. Pre, Intra and Post-operative skills are evaluated

Please note that the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Surgery Evaluations are available in both our Denver and Raleigh locations. Open surgery and trauma simulations are currently done in Denver only.
