    Outlier experienced surgeon’s performances impact on benchmark for technical surgical skills training

    Prospective, randomised and blinded clinical trials in surgery and interventional cardiology demonstrate that proficiency based progression (PBP) training produces a superior intra-operative skill-set.1-5 The PBP approach to training relies on a robust, quantitative assessment of experienced operator performance to establish a benchmark.  Atypical expert performances can lower the benchmark level that trainees must demonstrate in simulation before progressing to in vivo performance.
