Abstract

Expert performance is characterized by consistency. The degree of variability of performance from repetition to repetition during proficiency-based simulator training could potentially indicate acquisition of expertise. We hypothesized that learners with less variability in performance during simulator training would achieve greater performance at the end of training and improved transfer of skills to a live, anesthetized, porcine model.
