Abstract

Simulators are no replacement for patients in surgical learning. Live patients are required for teaching clinical signs and skills. Large numbers of students, a relative tack of motivation, a decreasing number of common cases, unwilling patients, differences in language, etc., make clinical teaching in India a bitter problem. Because patient-related problems are important, surgical training using models can help students to gain effective control over surgical signs and skills.
