Laparoscopic Student Skill Set


This skill set package includes five tasks that support the ACS APDS Curriculum Module 17 for building basic laparoscopic skills. Each task is supported with a skill set card for students that references the procedure, performance level guidelines, and required supplies.  This skill set focuses on basic hand-eye coordination and can be used with the LapTrainer with SimuVision (LTS-40) or secured to a table for classroom, clinic, home or office use.
