EACTS, in partnership with Ethicon, is proud to announce the 3rd annual EACTS/Ethicon Cardiovascular Simulation Award.
2013 topic: To create for training purposes a low fidelity simulator for aortic root surgery
The contest is to create a Simulator which replicates for training purposes one teachable component of an aortic root surgery (preferably as many different teachable components as possible and most certainly the essential ones: a low fidelity substitute for the aortic root prosthesis (essential), sizing, commissures, coronary re-implantation, valve or root implantation).
Development criteria of the Simulator:
- Low Fidelity
- Cost Effective
- Portable/Flat Pack assembly
The project should be submitted in the form of a transportable self-construction package. It should have a graphical description of its building process and a textual description of the materials used.
The contest is open to all residents and trainees and the award will be presented during the 27th EACTS Annual Meeting.
An educational grant of €3000 will be given to the winning team/person. The winning simulator may be manufactured and used throughout Europe for training.
Deadline for submission: Applications for the 2013 award have now closed.
