Minnesota Surgical Training Data Server

The Research and Development team members at the Medical School’s simulation program and the Center for Research in Education and Simulation Technologies (CREST) are developing a learning management platform (LMP) to facilitate data collection, access, and analysis for computer-based surgical training applications and validation studies. They plan to implement and deploy the LMP at MSI. As a starting point, they have designed and implemented a local version of LMP as a module in their latest laser prostate surgery simulation system. This module will be upgraded into a common, remote data registration and management module for all surgical and medical training/education programs that were developed at CREST. Some data collected here can be shared nationally among partners, clinics, medical schools, or other related researchers and educators for academic uses. The MSI user support team is working with this group to set up the database and web servers that are required for this project.
