Abstract:Robot assisted surgery is the next step in the evolution of the surgical domain. To support this development well-structured training programs are needed. Schreuder, Wolswijk, Zweemer, Schijven, and Verheijen (2012) give a structured overview of the robot assisted surgery training literature. Fisher et al. (2015) summarize the status of emerging training programs. Those two literature reviews are extended with a newly performed literature review. The extension includes the road to expertise, a broader use of expertise literature and lessons learned from aviation and sports. The purpose of the review is to find requirements for robot assisted surgery training. Further, gaps in the provided literature reviews are discussed. According to the core requirements for a robot surgery training the curriculum should be: (a) cognitive science and expert literature based, (b) proficiency based, (c) simulation based, (d) standardized, (e) validated, and (f) adaptive to experience level of the trainee. Those core requirements can be extended by the following recommendations. A robot assisted surgery training should consist of: (a) technical and non-technical skill modules, (b) emergency training, and (c) recursive proficiency based assessments and credentialing of surgeons. Last but not least a prototypical curriculum creation process is provided.
