​Formål

This PhD-project aims at improving virtual reality simulation of temporal bone surgery based on evidence.

Resume

Several studies on novice trainees (medical students and residents in otorhinolaryngology) with investigations of final-product performance in virtual reality simulation, the effect of repeated practice, and translation to cadaveric dissection performance.
