Orthopaedic residency training has and will continue to evolve with a wide variety of changes. Hands-on surgical simulation "boot camps," computerized simulation of surgical process, and even virtual reality simulators, all can help trainees acquire surgical experience without compromising patient care. Low-cost training modules help remedy the rising costs associated with teaching complex orthopaedic surgery skills. Motion tracking and checklists help refine standardization of assessment. As technology and healthcare systems continue to grow, we encourage training programs to keep pace by considering engagement of these tools.
